Sunday Muse - a Tribute to

Winetta Dukes Tassin 

He fell for her

Pawn rook and queen 

Dear lady's love 

Will linger on 

Generous, sweet 

Willingly down 

love's isle she went 

She gave to him 

Her attention 

Like none before 

Perfect couple 

From that day on 

She'd pull the weeds 

Mow needing grass 

Herd pickup truck 

Farmer instinct 

Sang high sang low 

Loud, crisp and clear 

Words of love for 

us and her God 

Not a selfish 

Bone in her bod 

Welcomed always 

in family 

Upon that day 

For her to leave 

She went with peace 

in soul, to God 

Her king and knight 

Gladly laid down 

Written in Tribute for my dear sister-in-law 

who died September 9, 2021 (Obituary)

What a beautiful tribute. This really choked me up:

“Her king and knight
Gladly laid down”

So perfect.
