Two Tickets To The Opry - Poem by Jerry Buckley

And then I blink, and realize
A half life, almost fifty five
Together in Tennessee with this incredible child

All my overdue annointments
Soothe a thousand disappointments
And far too many of them at her undeserved expense

Rejoicing in such cordial climes
Reborn into more gracious times
Permitting lumps of sugar to sweeten up my karma

Struck in manic realization
Our 25th? Celebration?
I'd best go right now, and buy two tickets to the Opry!
