Goodbye, Old Friend
Lengthening shadow on the fairway.
He walks alone on that final hole.
We watch him leave—
It wasn’t so much the greatness of his game
as the integrity of his life,
the care he showed to each person.
His smile lights up the heavens.
Yesterday, the world of golf lost a King. Arnold Palmer, who made a lasting impact on the game in so many ways, finished his round. In life, the Grand Slam eluded him, yet still his record on the PGA tour was in every way impressive. But more so, his person. Arnold was a truly loving human being. I see that as being the Grand Slam of living.
I’m sharing this with dVerse Quadrille…my third link. Sorry if I overwhelm Mr. Linky, but this man is worth a tribute, even though the poetry is so-so.
