A Place Called Jackson

With tearful eyes I said my goodbyes
To Aunt and Uncle, many years ago.
Their home was Jackson Tennessee
Where Pearl River waters floweth free.
Elvis~ a friendly potentate
Was their 'Rock-a-Billy' man so great,
Now, in mid August of each year
The constellation of Jackson churches
Pay homage to that name so dear.

A great tribute poem to your aunt & uncle.
My second visit to this poem is equally rewarding. This lends the place being described here a special touch with a nostalgic charm. Thanks again.
