Receives the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 1968 1985 Died: 7 December 1985 (natural causes) Imitation Poem BBig brown eyes slyly staring
With hold stories never told
Brows raised high
Like questioning my every move
Threatening Look, touch it if you’re daring

Little pug nose- goes down as she smiles
Cheeks, rosy, puffy, wild black hair, tamed in a bow
ears, tiny, chin, round, neck, where could it be?
Teeth, growing in, Lips, small and round

My finger close to the flash, frown disappearing and Smile Appearing
One eyes closed, eyes filled with anticipation
And for the last time I ask if she's ready
She stands up straight with a soldier’s anxiety
'cause after the flash, it's done.
