A Pool Named For 'Pop' - Poem by Bill Grace

When the pool was named for my father
He made the only speech I know of during his life
'Nothing like naming a pool for a guy who can't swim a stroke, '
and he sat down.
When he died they almost renamed the place for him
Presageing the lessons in love and death and remembrance
That would come to me as a pastor two decades later.
