BETSY BYRNE

 

 

I never told you Betsy

How majestic you were

The day the lovely cheerleader we had known

Emerged from some unknown cocoon 

Splashing before our eyes

In commanding gymnastic form

Strong, supple

Beautifully sculpted

Vaulting across the gymnasium floor

Only to vanish

As if a mirage

Into the ether of lingering memory
