    Cream colored Gardenia
    in her jet black hair
    like some exotic and
    regal crown.
    She steps on the stage.
    A hush over the crowd.
    Spotlight
    Drum's are tight,
    and the piano plays just right.
    Her mellow voice spins
    over the silence;
    liquid over our rock
    as she touches us "Body and Soul."
    In us
    she gave beautiful and "Strange Fruit."
    Leaving us speechless
    and out of breath.
    She gave many "A Fine Romance,"
    in the way her words sparked
    illusions of "April In my Heart,"
    and "Autumn in New York."
    She was fresh and I was totally
    floored "Beyond the Sea."
    Ever thankful that I was able to see
    the realism and beauty of Billie.
    She infused me with passion for singing
    and jazz, "Come Rain or Come shine,"
    and her spirit is divine.
    Now I sit in my "Solitude", "Fine and Mellow."
    writing out my thanks to the "Embraceable You."
    Thanking God for blessing this land with
    the pleasure of knowing a beautiful soul
    with the spirit and gift of 'Lady Day.'
