Just brushed over this after posting blurry eyed at one this morning, my excuses Joe..'

Robbinsville January 1943, a visionary artist was born to be Country strong style, is his-story; par-excellence to you and me Electric guitars just newly seen; would play one day, on music scene's Where women will swoon, and young girls scream Hard saved dimes, to his 'turn' would see; at Young Harris, in Towns county. A Georgia boy made good & some stories, in country-rock/pop R&B! A world I wouldn't miss, was 'born' to be; under the hands of Ronnie Lee! Smoky mountain rain fell on our hearts, through cracklin radio's to early starts 'Pure Love' played all its lively parts; at park or mall & in K-marts. His music echoed in the '70s & '80s, along with chrome mag wheels & feelin free. Milsap impacts listener land, to date he stirs the soul of man, His flow is rolling, verging on unplanned, his 'Local Girl' understated-grand My finding is; my verdict says there's 'more of our guy' on the way! When I'm feeling weary or senses grey, a 'hit' from Ronnie lifts my day. Cross Missouri mudflats, on Florida sand; he moulds emotions in his hands. ©JOE MAVERICK 2-11-2015

oh good old Ronnie. Cool to see someone do a poem on him. But come on, now, this is not a limerick! You got the rhyme right but too many syllables. You should call this a rhymed poem! On that bribery poem, everyone had to write one to Casarah to get on her winners' list. hahaha!!! Is mine the only one you saw? You should check out all the contests and try some of them, my friend.

I love Ronnie Milsap! I'm dating myself, but I used to have several of his albums. I haven't heard anything new from him in a long time. I enjoyed reading your poem, Joe! Love, Kim
