My Memories of JFK

John Jack Kennedy
was as brilliant as could be
A studied Harvard graduate
A navy hero of the sea

He was from Massachusetts
A lover of the dunes
and used to walk beside them
on summer afternoons

He was a much loved President
His spoken word was magic
I never did understand why
his ending was so tragic

I can remember him so clear
but time flies quickly by
I remember Jackie's pill box hat
John-John and Caroline

It is a shame that violence
brought his colorful life to end
the Kennedys' profiles in courage
were an absolute Godsend

There is so much happiness
around JFK's short term
His fun sense of humor
A smart, well read bookworm

We all will never forget him
Those of us who loved him so
The articulate, animated speeches
The radiant look he'd always showr

    Beautiful tribute, Jeanne. I think it's time our country remembers one of his best phrases: "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." It seems we have gotten away from that sentiment lately. Thanks for sharing this tribute. Joe

    Well-written poetic tribute to a beloved President whose time on the earth was sadly abbreviated.
