In Charlotte’s eyes, that certain

Gleam;

An elfin “twinkle” more bright

Than ever Tinker Bell’s tinkle!

So inspiring to all of “us kids.”

Even Jon, who by lineage not hers,

But a willing partner, to run through the furze

Peculiar to Dorchester county lowlands.

I adore a Horse! And, of course, when Charlotte’s

Steed,

Un-horsed her indeed – why, she promptly-

Despite some pain and harm

Soon remounted with no alarm!

That’s the timeless, charging, caring Lady I knew,

And all you deserve, as the panoply of your

Life’s riches unfurling-

Is to remain, undaunted, ever on the Go!
