Riding on Ellison's Qua-Train

It is on this day
Into his elegant horizons
Where cirrus clouds are sprayed from sunrises and sunsets
Attuned within throat of violins

An example of his concave humanity
Preaching fond memories in baritone clefs
An embrace of admirations’ core within exhaled stanzas
Forcing trembled knees to stand against robe of Death

His double entendres know no bounds
My iridescent conundrums become resolutions’ pavement
As I grab aloe-coated tissues
Wiping joyous tears from his laughter induced statements

He pours wisdom in foaming, oat-flavored pints
While we relish in his charming, devilish wit
Slowing down a rushed humanity
Bit by luminescent bit

Yes, it is on this day
Where I choose to declare in Quatrain formed sentence
To the one that puts the “man” in humanity
An affirmation on why I bow in Santa’s reverence

©Drake J. Eszes
Dedicated to the almighty Jack Ellison and my 1st Quatrain!

    I have written many, many quatrain poems, and I know how hard it can be sometimes. You have done a really great job with your first attempt! A nice tribute to Jack, too. Awesome work, Drake!...Many thanks for the great comments. It's nice to read your work again, too!

    I didn't think I could pull this one off. But, I did. Jack was my motivation to do it and he didn't even realize it. :) I think I did the man proud here. Thank you so much, Kelly!
