A Rose for Alison (c)

Go, fierce death, please go.
(Schubert, "Death of a Maiden")

O you of fresh talent,
on the blush of youth,
taken from us too soon,
too soon.

Innocent, and brimming 
with enthusiasm,
your image captivated millions
as we witnessed your savvy
and skill,
so keen for one so young,

for the one who did this
to you, to us, to the world.

You had the sweetest and 
most comprehensive soul
hewed from a heart of gold.

Shine on, in truth and beauty.
