Carolyn Devonshire

There lives a grand lady near the sea In Ormand where she delights to be. She is a Poetess, words she shares In lovely poems, her heart she bares. With humble poem good wishes I send. I feel honored to call her my friend. A kindred spirit shined from the start. Carolyn gives with an open heart. All her friendships she holds very dear She's always there to spread her good cheer. A more loyal friend you will not find Her soul is so pure, loving and kind. Her beauty glows within and without She is a blessing without a doubt. In colors of love, I see her shine, I celebrate this sweet friend of mine! 9-22-19 ~Second Place~ ~Poem of the Week 9/29-10/5/19~ Pick a Friend on Soup Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Bobby May

Connie, All the comments show that friendships abound. Most of us, new to PoetrySoup, have only swam in the shallows of all the wonderful poetry that is there for all to enjoy. To me, the poem 'Carolyn Devonshire' is a fine tribute to one so kind. My thanks belong to both of you for sharing your gift that continues to enrich our lives. -Richard

Oh what a beautiful tribute to Carolyn this is, Connie! Apart from being a talented writer, she has a most lovely character, thinking of and helping others without expecting anything in return. Most of all she looks at life positively, even when the odds are against her. ~ Warm regards // paul

Go Connie! Sorry it took me long to get back to you with Congratulations on your win. Panagiota I kept the name of my friend out. I can see the wisdom of it now. I was conflicted about doing so. I wanted to get replies if I won not based on who I chose, but on the poem itself. Besides, egos here run big. I have never read Carolyn..now I will. Love, Panagiota
