Meredith Hope Emerson, loving, caring, an important part of nature,
She and her dog Ella, loved the mountains and outdoors.
Where the rhodendrum grow , the hemlock stand tall, and the Eagle soars,
Just sitting marvelling at the appalacians; so majestic with splendor,
She and Ella, playing, hiking, and bonding with love,
The forest, inhabitants; birds, and deer meander,
The meadows in Bucktown, will take your breath, and wild azaleas bloom,
The sun rising high, the forest comes alive, the honey bees and Butterflys.
Black bears just lumbering along, the birds singing mother nature’s favorite song.
Hikers come from all over to hike the AT, some hiking it short, some hiking it long,
She and Ella thought of this as a paradise, for whatever it’s worth,
When they were one, with the earth, my only request is, and I pray,
That they meet again on that endless Rainbow Bridge, entering Heaven , Someday.
In nature she’ll be missed, by family, friends, and loved ones.
As our somber nation prays, she was my neighbor for just Four Days……
