A Poem on Learning of the Death of the Queen

 Like so many I was shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Queen Elizabeth II yesterday afterrnoon. This morning I wrote a poem:

It was an ordinary day,
wet and grey,
when I heard them say
you died.

So, it all changed
as the world lost
a woman,
someone's mother,

Were you more than that?

You were our Queen.
A model for many,
but I doubt we'll see
your like again.
