(in memory of Jean Kennedy Smith (1928-2020), United States ambassador to Ireland)
by Ruth Esther Gilmore

through pleated green daylights
where oceans lean on cliffs
fogs cling to cotton sails
crumbling to brittle dust
pegasus outlines his vast flights

i see into your heart
discover the goodness
and fiery courage
to overcome challenges
to finish whatever you start

quiet valleys tenfold
are caressed by the winds
i see into your soul
assured that you will not fail
to conclude the legends of old

and when the dragons twist
always hope against hope
mastering your veiled fears
with heartbeats of gained victories
always remain an optimist

*from the book “braving life in these uncertain times” (Geest-Verlag) by Ruth Esther Gilmore

June 24, 2020 "I had the good fortune to have some time with the Ambassador, as I always called her. Her wit, intelligence, passion for doing the right thing, and her love for her family and country impressed me deeply. I will certainly never forget her and I don't believe anyone who knew her will either. Her work made the world a better and more peaceful place and will long be remembered by those who only knew her by her name. May she rest in peace after a life well lived. My deepest condolences to all the family and loved ones. " - Laura Delano (New York City, NY)
