My tribute to one of America's finest playwrights.
Arthur Miller (1915-2005)

Death of a Playwright


So now your gone…

Man who

Spoke bitter



Willy Loman

Lived the dream

You showed him

How to fall.


Mcathry’s paranoia

Became your Crucible

Loyal and trusted man

They found no witches

To burn.

Marilyn lost child

Broken hearted

Your pen enriched them all


We thank you

Man who

Spoke bitter



The curtain falls.



P. Williams © 2005

A beautiful tribute, Paul. I missed that he'd passed on. One of my favorites. Thank you.
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 2/14/2005
I think he would very much approve of this encapsulation, Paul: the equivalent of a 24-gun salute - respect, honour and strength. How we admire those who "dare to do", and carve their own unique paths which leave the rest of us wondering. The curtain can never fall on that which he has opened to us. May the work of individual genius always sought to be applauded and appreciated in their own lifetimes, and not solely posthumously. Succinct and to the point, as he would wish it, perhaps. TY for this, Kate xx
