To the Editor:

I am a reader of the Pine Journal and this is a poem I have written titled, "This is Not Goodbye." I would love to see this in the paper because I am a foreign exchange student and I would like to leave a part of me in Cloquet because I lived here during my stay in the United States.

This is Not Goodbye

The stars spell your name on a cold winter night

The sun shines your smile on my face

The birds sing your laughter with joy and delight

The wind is your healing embrace

A leaf from the beech is the touch of your hand

The ocean is deep as your eyes

Your scent is a meadow of flowery plant

Yes, you are the world in disguise

And still to this day every night I recall

The day that your heart came to rest

Though you went on the greatest journey of all

Your memory lives in my chest.

Louise Mikkelsen, Cloquet
