Read Poem: FRANK, by Robert Evans

Note of explanation:
My old boss was a friend of the Canadian businessman who bought Frank Sinatra’s home in Rancho Mirage, California, and he had been invited to stay for a week. I got to stay overnight and that evening Frank’s estate manager who was still there said I was welcome to use the Jacuzzi which I did. He brought me a glass of wine. so there I was by the pool in the jacuzzi sipping the wine all by myself and listening to a Sinatra cd via the outdoor speakers. This is what inspired the following poem:

By Robert Evans

As I sit here
in your Jacuzzi
on a balmy
Palm Springs night
the sound of your music
fills the air
I take a sip of wine
and think
of how
it must have been
A thousand voices
in idle chatter
the clink of glasses
peals of laughter
spaghetti dinners
made by your mamma
Famous guests
Dean and Sammy
Joey and Peter
Shirley M.
Marilyn M.
Jack K.
So Many
So Many
And now
as I enjoy
your music
I know…
you will live
