A Host, Worthy To Boast - Poem by Derek Johnson

When hosting my finest guest
Of honor, nearly nothing serves
me more with affinity than
to imagine that my renowned
"bill of fame" has truly become
for the moment, one's hearts
desire, for this assures me
sufficiently, that my guest reception
truly comes with delight.
