In our continued farewell to Bruno Lettieri, writer and poet Martin Prewer takes on the beauty and personality of the man himself.


What can we say of Bruno?

Of the cheeky smile, hospitable

Of deeper questions, challenging

Of the teacher, encouraging

For those of us





Hoping for a new path

Risking half a step forward

Fearing failure


What can we say of Bruno?

He gave us wisdom, opportunity, example

He humoured us, provoked us, accepted us

He fired us with possibilities

And nurtured life-stretching belief

In ideas

In community

In ourselves
