Here is a poem I shot off to a very good friend, the Rev. Dr. Thomas Eggebeen, who just retired after forty-four years of ordained ministry.
He’s a great writer and I expect to see many posts on his several blogs.
He has been such a great minister of the Presbyterian Church (USA) that I give him the highest compliment of which I can think: I would be proud to have him as my pastor.
Good, good, good for you
and Ms. Donna, too.
Can’t come your L.A. way
this winter ’cause Buddy Baloo
has come our Holland way
and between there and Phoenix is here to stay,
But you two are more than a New Orleans’ greeting of that jazz guy Harry Connick,
as long as you bring the gin and tonic
or a fifth of Ten High
for your best, old, buddy, one bad Kentucky Bourbon sippin’ guy.
