Memphis 2006 - Poem by Christina Sunrise
Springtime in Memphis Tennessee,
traveling with friend
last named pronounced Lee.
Stopping at a coffee bar,
taking photos with local star.
Then going to river named Mississippi,
taking sideway photos of Melodie.
Then off to Elvis’s daughters plane,
“Lisa Marie” across from Graceland.
Brick wall with graffiti by fans for the King,
just plain writing with no sparkling bling.
Elvis's mansion surrounded by gate,
store nearby with Elvis plate.
And of course an Elvis toy,
given as gift for girl or boy.
Razel did take photo with King,
she got a kiss, but wanted a fling.
Then up north from there is downtown,
we stopped and listened to Jazz all around.
Razel took photos with 'singers of the blues',
she posed sideways with no shoes,
singers laughing totally amused.
Then Razel took a 1 hr snooze,
while driving to Florida to get on a cruise.
Memphis was fun don’t get me wrong,
this is the place where Elvis still sings his songs.
