For Kerri Lynn

“For Kerri Lynn,” Ensign, Apr. 1987, 31

For Kerri Lynn

She bounced

Along with saucy

Smile and gay brown eyes—

And everything went sunny where

She’d been.

An elf,

A Fairy-child,

A sprite—She twinkled, danced,

And blithely scattered stardust on

Our path.

For six

Short years she loved

This life—It loved her back,

Then passed her on, unblemished, Home
