Dedication
For my husband Arkadiusz, who gave me
the strength to BE.
For my children: Aletheia, Arianna,
Jason, Amelia and Arielle who gave me
the will to Be, and for whom I made the
choice to BE. If I can do it, so can they.
For my beloved grandparents who pro-
tected me, and most especially my grand-
mother. She loved me as I was; and
because of her, I had faith that I could
BE.
The Lost Love
She dwelt among untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove;
A maid whom there were none to praise,
And very few to love.
A violet by a mossy stone
Half-hidden from the eye!
Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.
She lived unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceased to be:
But she is in her grave, and O!
The difference to me!
