Jean(eanjay) 2017 Obituary-Janet Jones (Rawdon) (15) RE: 2017 Obituary-Janet Jones (Rawdon) 14 Jul 17


I was out of the country for most of May and so was unable to go to Janet's funeral.

I wrote this acrostic poem shortly after I was told about the seriousness of her condition and only a few days before her death.

Farewell

Frozen in time sweet memories of you
Are foremost in my mind on this sad day,
Rolling thoughts as waves upon the shore,
Energised by what is now decay.
We onward march to where we do not know
Ever reaching back across the miles,
Longing for that which is not here or now,
Lost in reality and all our trials.

Farewell

"November 1837" is a haunting and beautiful poem, about the wild moors, written by Emily Brontė when she was 19 years old. Set to music and so beautifully sung by Janet you can listen to it here:

November 1837

There are some lovely photos of Janet in the video.
