To Alison,
The Rainbow Harpist

You have left the rainbow,
The sun, the moon,
the stars,
so much behind you.

Until you had gone
I did not know that you had left
the rivers, the forests,
the silences.
I did not know
I should always remember
your music in my heart.

Viva Alison,
Mucho gracias…
Peter Jacobson, Poet,
Dunedin, New Zealand
