Ode To Drake Poem by Richard Wlodarski

Ode To Drake

Rating: 4.8

To be a childhood star
Knowing you've surpassed the bar
To see the moon beyond the sky
Totally sober and not high

To hear the music beyond song
Truly trusting you haven't gone wrong
To smell fear and be rough
Always fighting to be tough

To touch all that is pure love
And have sense of the above
To taste glorious victory
And still remain loyal and free

To be the one and only Drake
Knowing you've never been a fake
To rise beyond the star so bright
Keeping bang-up values in sight

A magnificent Ode! My favourite lines, 'To be the one and only/Drake Knowing you've never been a fake/To rise beyond the star so bright/Keeping bang-up values in sight'

Dr Swain, it's always an honour when you revisit my poems and positively comment on them. You really liking this one so much may give me the impetus to send it to Drake.
