Nashville Awaits Me


Sitting at the senior center writing and listening
to a song given to me by two gentlemen from Nashville
who absolutely love my poetry and want to put it to
music, sending me a contract to sign so they can begin.
Then I ended up in the hospital, having emergency
surgery, ending up in a coma for four and a half days
on life support.
When they found out what I was going through, they
sent me a song entitled, 'You Can Do It', to inspire
me on the road to recovery.
It helped me a lot and I'm still here - better yet,
they still want my poetry to put to music.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
