A summer rose
has touched our hearts--
her beauty, planted in our souls
forever.

Now we can see;
the fresh, radiant Blossom
illuminates
even in the winter.

We can see
the infinite strength
in the gentleness
that endures the chilling frost;

we can see
the Ordeal
and the Bliss
as her inextinguishable dignity
defies a frozen Earth,
and she blooms again and again--
ever so lovely-- our heroine
Summer Rose.

-- George Krumenacker
For Deidre Hannafin (1961-1994)
