Remembering our Friend Mary Palmer

by Geoff Hall on June 9, 2014

Today marks the anniversary of Mary’s passing (in 2009) on to the next phase of the life eternal. I’d like to remember her talent in her own words, which were published in the epic ‘Tidal Shift’, a book of selected poems, published by Awen Publications and launched at Waterstones in Bath.

the daily grind:

may you, in your work
know joy
and a sense of purpose

may you use your talents
and feel fulfilled

may God work through you
in moments of friendship, fun
and laughter


when the going gets tough
may you bring good
out of adverse situations

have the courage
to denounce injustice
refrain from gossip

and the wisdom to know
when it’s time to move on
and let go

Tidal Shift by Mary Palmer


simple, straightforward, yet profound and moving. bless you and thank you, mary palmer.
