Dedicated to Dajena Mason
The victors will be welcome forever,
for I just love to concede, not without
a hearty fight of course, to determine
if my guest is a true victor inside!
And those that prove their worth are then transformed
from the level of a guest to the height
of a dear friend by the fire of my home,
befriended in heart for the rest of this life!
There are, sadly though, more victors of mouth
than of heart nowadays but the latter
has by no means gone extinct, have no doubt,
I have known a few in the recent years
and one of them I sing of is an angel, true
the one that sends her letters in a dazzling shade of blue!
