Far and beyond the largest Tribute page we have ever assembled, over 150 submitters offered their work for these pages, most of those had four to ten works each, meaning approximately a total of around 1,000 poems were sent to us for Jane's tribute . . . typically, we chose carefully.

The park benches
dither the oldies
autumn leaves...

impulsively
two sea otters romp upon
a rain soaked dock
while into port comes my muse
and sea swells pound the lighthouse

your farewell words
still lingering

watching the waves
crash...
she remembers
the future

the brightest star

in your memory remains
wondrous poet

bringing us in
and taking us out...
the tides' rhythmic voices

go down with the sun
and we are but stuff
the stars are made of

the gray expanse of

how empty
this busy street

     another fallen starwish
         brushes thru the dusk
