Three Davids I have Known

Written by: Andrea Dietrich

David the First In an old photo I’m being bathed by a boy looking quite bashful. . . the first young man to hold me - my mother’s only brother. David Bunker My first love note came from junior high’s smartest guy - shy freckled David, future doctor of acclaim. For one month I had his heart. David Williams Our poet at Soup - like the one of Bible times whose psalms soothed a king - touches us with modern verse and blesses us with friendship. (As I went to enter the contest, I noticed I was supposed to write of only one famous David. Well, I don't know the famous ones like i know these three. In a way, my middle one is famous. I just googled him and saw he was on the short list of nominations for a prestigioius award naming most honorary of all students who ever graduated from my high school! and of course, our own David Williams is famous at SOUP!!)
