Ode to Alex
by Jeannette Gravett
Now that all is said and done
With seriousness – and some fun;
A personal tale is told in this story
And each of us gets to share in the glory.
Our guides and our porters showed us the way
And kept us safe ’til the end of each day.
A trek on the mighty Kilimanjaro
Becomes an adventure and then so much more – Yo!
Some were slow, others fairly flew on those slopes,
Yet each of us fulfilled all our hopes
Of reaching the top, and then going down
We finally made our way back into town.
Asante sana, Alexy, for writing this book
Which, in its own way, into our souls takes a look.
Hats off to you – you’ve done a GREAT job
And thanks for including our little mob!
