View Full Version : OMG, Ode to Garth to be Published!!!

03-18-2000, 05:31 AM
I just received release forms for my <B>Ode to Garth</B> to be published in a book called "From the Mountaintop"!!!! The book is scheduled to be published this summer. My poem will definitely appear in the publication and is in the semifinals to win various cash prizes. A cash prize would be very cool but the fact that it's about Garth and will be published in a book of poetry is all I care about!!<P>Cheryl<BR>N

Thanks everybody! I didn't think it was that good, but I submitted it because it's about Garth. Alot of people may not see it, but who knows. I posted on the Gbox a long time ago after it came to me in a dream but here it is again.<P>
<B>Ode to Garth</B><P>When you grow old and notes you forget, take comfort in knowing the people you've met.<P>You've touched our lives in so many many ways, brought happiness and meaning in uncertain days.<P>We found friends is low places while heading to the dance and united as one to take the shameless chance.<P>You send your message so loud and so clear, that we shall be free as the change is near.<P>When the thunder rolls and some become victim of the game, we will stand and shout that Garth is the name.<P>That summer in New York brought the beaches of Cheyenne, and left all your fans yearning again to see the man.<P>Off to Ireland and back the millions did go, but we'll forever think of cowboys and boots and rodeo.<P>If tomorrow never comes, let it all be said, that you are the man and through your life we were led.<P>When you grow old with the memories you clutched, smile softly and think of the souls you have touched.<P>After seeing how Garth has made so many people happy at Spring Training and elsewhere, especially the kids whose lives will forever be changed, I think it's very appropriate now more than ever.<P>Cheryl<P>N
