To My Brother on His 70th Birthday

To My Brother on His 70th Birthday (7-25-2009)

A river bends through the wilderness,
With a shoreline of unkempt greenery
Wild, yet restful and inviting
The sun bathes the scene in light
And flocks of wild turkeys roam free--
This is a world of rich tapestry
Where stories are told that are young
With memories running long and their pull deep
Yet today is a challenge with promises to keep--
Accomplished is the word that most comes to mind
In the church, in government, in the family
Investment is required that is awesome and steep
Yet Bob is steady and convinced to the core
Of the essential validity of this marathon run
That his love will be returned in dominant fun.
