Hi, I have posted this on two evenings, and everything shortly disappeared. I'll try one more time, since I know some of you like this kind of thing. This is dedicated to all the board members, their families or friends who have embarked on their final great cruise. Celestial Ship I dreamed I saw a golden cruising ship With gleaming decks that reached toward the sky, Just lifting anchor for a fabled trip, To sail into the clouds and touch the sky. And greeted there by friends from long ago And loved ones who were gone for many years, To hear once more a long lost fond hello, And meet the cheerful throng with happy tears. What myriad wonders that my eyes could see With famous paintings there on every wall. Great artists and composers meeting me, With music from some mighty concert hall. The cusine on that ship beyond compare With renowned chefs from every age and clime. And waiters without equal served the fare, And every cruiser called the meals sublime. What shows there were upon that mystic cruise, Performers from the present and the past, With Shakespear's newest plays and witty views, Great dancers, singers, actors in the cast. At tea that day, I met Diogenes Who told me that he'd found an honest man, Then Chopin playeds piano bar to please, And Nero served the drinks with great elan. The ports we saw were fine beyond compare, Alexandria, Rome and Athens in their prime. But then, I woke just dozing in my chair. That ship must cruise with me some future time. Paul B .
