A poem for Diana
The story behind the poem
I am a mathematician and as a result have never really
taken any notice of current affairs or history or the monarchy.
However, for some reason I was always interested in Diana, the
Princess of Wales. I thought she had an air of sincerity and grace
and for that I appreciated her and her work greatly. She died the
night of my mother's wedding day which brought her death into plain
view to me. It hit a nerve which I was unaware existed and made me
feel deeply sad. She did so much and and helped so many people.
Within a few weeks I had written this poem and I then submitted it
to a school magazine. I was only thirteen when I wrote it but even now,
ten years on, when I read it I feel all those emotions I had back
then. I miss her ..... the world misses her!
