A drawing of several trees.

In Charlotte’s eyes, that certain


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


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!
