In praise of a friend

I love your ever-present, overflowing tidbits of knowledge.
Your ability to speak eloquently
Your many faceted interests
Your capacity to listen kindly to a woman’s woes

Your beautiful brown eyes,
Especially when they smile .
The glow of your skin

The soft way your hair falls across your forehead
The quickness of your mind

The extemporaneous witticisms you create.
Your warm smile
The melodic tonal quality of your voice

Your capacity to put to memory
A thousand lines of poetry (Awesome!)

Your eccentric taste in clothing
Your level-headed rationality
Your thriftiness

Your capacity to maintain protection over your deep feelings
Your ability to keep a modicum of controlled fairness,
when opinions are flung far and wide around you.

Your cool reserve
The way you carry yourself.

Elizabeth Munroz - 1989
Dedicated to George Dunn


  1. What a wonderful elegy this is. George would/must be be very touched.
    I'm intrigued how do you know him, who is he? Tell me to mind my own business if you like!

  2. George was a dear friend during one of the most difficult times in my life many years ago. I had written those words for him then. He helped me get away from an untenable situation. Since I had moved to the other side of the country we lost touch after that. I often wonder how he is doing. Exemplary as usual, I imagine.
