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

novicemaster: The imagery in this prose poem is glorious. I love the way you manipulate words. You seem to have harnessed them to bend to your every whim. The slightly archaic ones like "whilst" make this resemble a fairytale. The entire idea of a prose poem is brilliant. I didn't get the ending at first, but ...

ItsAnnier: Great original idea! Long poems don't often hold me, but yours did to the end and made me want more of the story. Was it a Crime of passion with the murderer returning to the crime scene? I hope further poems will tell me more!
