The Queen Is Dead.

A recent photo of Her Majesty.

The Queen is Dead.

My whole life,

Elizabeth II has been,

the Queen of England,

The U.K, the Commonwealth.

I am a Canadian,

the Queen appears on,

our money, our stamps,

she is,


the Queen of Canada.

She has visited and stayed,

in all parts of Canada,

many more parts,

than the average Canadian.

Canada is a very large country.

Elizabeth lived a long life,

96 years.

The Queen was a continuous,

example of grace,

of duty,

she was a smiler,

and somehow seemed,


In the last year or so,

since the death of her husband,

she has appeared,


You could tell, her energy was,


Her smile was still there,

but, smaller, with always,

a trace of sadness.

The skin of her face,

appeared more,

thin, crinkly.

This happens,

to older people,

it happened to my mother.

But, I think it is not only,

age and aging,

it seems to accompany,

less gusto for life,

when those people,

and those things,

that were most important,

to you, have gone.

Then comes the frailness,

the slipping away.

I feel great sadness at her passing.

She just was,

always there.

May she rest in peace.

In a week it will be 2 years,

since my beloved mother died.

I hope you all enjoy ,

the September sunshine.

Be well you all.

Later girls,
