THE BOOK OF ESTHER

Each time I see a swimming pool, I think of you and smile. Your breaststroke and your butterfly Could dazzle and beguile. You aced your screen test with Clark Gable. Don’t be bashful, drop a line. You had entanglements with Tarzan. Come on in, the water’s fine. You frolicked through the Aquacade, So dangerous when wet. Your million-dollar mermaid played Queen Neptune on the set. Fox claimed Sonja Henie’s fluid waltz across the ice. MGM framed Esther Jane’s aquatic edelweiss. Each time I see a swimming pool, I think of you and smile. A pin up in a bathing suit. Van Johnson liked your style.
