A Poem for Linda Ronstadt, Silenced by Parkinsons Disease

For Linda Ronstadt: Beautiful Brown Eyes

Los ojos marrones y mas bonitos,
and the voice of an angel,
so beautiful, so beautiful,
now silenced by Parkinsons--

Lo siento, Mi Vida,
so sorry, my love, so sad
to see the end of your musical career,
your songs a sweet gift to the world.

You in your silence
can rest assured:
the great art, the beauty, you created
still stirs the hearts of so many listeners.

[Bob Coughlin / October 2015]
