Beloved Queen


By Lucy Hennessy

A life without Her,
We have never known.
For seventy years,
She had the throne.
A constant, amongst change,
Always there.
With love, devotion,
Unwavering care.
So beautiful and elegant,
Pure grace, all while.
The brightest of suits;
And the brightest of smiles.
The end of your reign,
In your home of Balmoral.
The world held still,
United in sorrow.
Flags at half-mast,
Of red, blue, and white.
You’re the brightest star
In the sky tonight.
Unlike any other,
Always the calm,
Rest well now, Queen,
And thank you, Ma’am.
