It was with great sorrow and grief that I heard of the news that this dear Lady had passed away.

She will be long remembered as an Icon in British hearts for her superb songs and tv programmes like Surprise, Surprise and Blind date. Rest in peace.

Do not fear now the time has come
remember with pride her success.
She will never truly die while on
lives her music and her songs.

We will always remember her 
with love and delight as always
she touched a nations heart
bringing us her special magic.

Cilla I grew up to your music
watched you in surprise, surprise.
You represented the best of our
small island and spread joy in all.

Dear lady, rest now in peace
the wrench to our hearts
will keep you alive for many years.
Bless you for all you gave us.

It is very good of you Shadow to dedicate this poem to a most popular person. I enjoyed her voice and songs, and still have some of her old records. I knew she was also a tv presenter, but in Malta we admired her mostly as a singer. // paul

I could only do one collaboration.. anyway, Shadow. So yes, a double post would work best for me! I know nothing of castles and my partner is not even ready to start yet. Thanks for your swift reply here.... glad I came back to notice it!!.................

A lovely tribute. Sad to say, I did not know of her. Was she English? I have a question if you could let me know in soupmail or under a poem. When we do a collaboration with another person, can we both enter the contest with that poem. ( in other words, the poems would appear as pairs in the winner list). That is what I am wondering. Thanks!!

you can if you like but that means neither of you could post if you work in more that 1 collaboration. There is nothing to stop you from posting 2 poems with same poet which might work better. ty Andrea hugs
