RIP Jane Wyatt, 1910-2006

I most fondly remember Jane Wyatt from Father Knows Best. But this poem, referencing her impact on the Star Trek universe, was posted today on the SciFaiku list by Deborah P Kolodji, and it’s a beautiful tribute. I haven’t reached Deborah for permission to post it here, but I can’t resist. Thanks, Deborah.

(A Cinquain For Jane Wyatt)


The stars
will claim you now.
My human side will mourn
even as I deny it with
raised brow.

- Deborah P Kolodji

Even on Father Knows Best her character was "matronly." However, in other roles, notably Sondra in Lost Horizon and Aggie in None But the Lonely Heart, she had another type of charm.
