THE LADY DAY













THE LADY DAY
WILL NEVER DIE
FOR THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND


AS MUSIC PLAYS
IT ALSO CRIES
TO LIFT THE SOUL OF MAN

THE BLUES SHE SUNG
WITH TEARFUL EYES
FOR THOSE WHO UNDERSTOOD

AND LIKE THE SUN
HER VOICE WOULD RISE
AND MAKE US ALL FEEL GOOD

Hey Mark:

Sometimes I have to steal away for a moment to just be. Thanks for all your work on the Afrospear. And thanks for coming over and seeing about me.

@ credo

Sometimes I have to steal away too Credo, that is why I think it is important to recruit new members so everybody can steal away when they need to.

Also keep your head up. Mark
