Elegy For Violet Hunter

By gabrielsangel79

Poetry

Elegy For Violet Hunter

Unrelenting you faced the great detective

Who wanted to dismiss your problem as trivial

But in the end you enchanted the Great Brain with your chestnut hair

And earned his respect with your fearless investigations


You matched your wit and your courage

Against a villain and a fiend who was all teeth and smiles and jokes

You discovered the deceptions and looked straight through the pretences

To save a woman much like yourself


Farewell courageous lady

You will live on in our memories

As a beloved character in an immortal tale

Where bravery triumphed over cruelty

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)
