Birthday Poem

Happy Birthday, Bo!

February 11, 2015

By Terri Bonow

Walter Burnett/Bo Bonow is 91 years old in 2015

He’s still dedicated, able, and mentally keen.

He’s a Patriarch with kind, twinkly eyes

Singing funny songs, with jazzy vibes.

He displays great truths and a steady soul

His intellect is wonderful to behold!

He has had an extensive, wonderful life

Enjoying adventures with Bee his lovely wife.

His family is accomplished and prestigious

Good looking, smart, kind, they are prodigious.

We honor his steady reserve that so endears

Encouraged by a strong mind and the ability to persevere.

He celebrates his 91st Birthday, Hurrah!

Inspiring with strength, great love; we have total awe!

The original novel was subsequently lost before it was rediscovered last autumn.
