Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Dear Miss Bailey
 
~~~~~~~~
I'd waited so eagerly
To meet you face to face.
We were to share our poetry
Here in this special place.
~~
You had another booking
And you just couldn't wait,
A much greater rendezvous
At Heaven's golden gate.
~~~
You've joined the Heavenly choir.
With your dusky-velvet tones.
Where Angels sing in harmony
In your new celestial home.
~~~~~~~~~

A tribute to the late Pearl Bailey
who passed away in 1989
just before I was to meet her
at the poetry convention in Las Vegas
I wrote this back then.
