An Ode To Anna Russell, On Her Birthday

here is an ode to Anna Russell
with a wriggly jiggly bum that is really all muscle
and with a mind that is dancing all of the time
she's a tequila mockingbird with a twist of lime

tipsy in her highest heels
Paul Newman yet appeals
an optimist with endless hugs
(except for certain types of bugs)
she'd never live in that little town
and red letters unwanted don't get her down
proud Mom and a hardy Scot
slender dreams and broken heart
blank pages don't cause her fear
she leaves us all with a perfect tear
honest truths written beautifully
many lovers she has - of her poetry
And if you haven't read her stuff
you've been warned - fair enough
get on over, hurry and see
you don't want to be *this* Scot-free

here is an ode to Anna Russell
it was typed in a bit of a hustle
but today is her birthday - age 27
Anna, may your day be a blissful heaven!

As usual, Chuch. A poem with a lot of fun and energy in it. Good write.
Just saw this Anna - you've become a bit elusive but never mind, all the best PH-ers are at this party! Happy birthday, many happy returns and enjoy every day! Love, Linda in LA
my salute to Chuck!
Charles, after reading this, yes, there was no other way to but write it in a 'hustle'. You delineated her energy, personality and gave her life, and described her persona in fitting words which demand a jet plane comparison. Beautiful! Obviously, you are a man of powerful energy, too. Loved this. My best, Carol Happy birthday, Anna! Priceless gift given to you by Charles!
Wow what a wonderful tribute to a very fine poet pal! Anna is indeed a fab gal and you did her proud with this Chuck! Enjoyed reading this. HG: -) xx
