In peace

His words 
were few but 
few were better chosen
words than his.


I loved the craft
with which a phrase 
was drawn or metaphor 
unfolded.


I loved the silences
he shaped between 
the words as if the silence
was a syllable to sound.


There will be longer 
silence now.
but still his words lie
softly on the page
resting in peace.


(c) A McN

Ron was a local poet whose gentle way with words will be much missed.
