Judy Garland short poem

Hollywood Angel, Somewhere over the rainbow
And on down that yellow brick road through
The years and stage to stage well That’s Entertainment
Still going strong, although she’s been gone for
So long her spirit still lives on…
Like a journey to a star, maybe once, maybe twice
MGM favorites would come to see her show from
L.A. to New York City standing in the shadow of
Her name in bright neon lights…
Then the curtains would rise and the applause was
Louder than thunder, she’d just stand there with her
Arms crossed under the spotlight ’til the moment
Was right but as soon as she’d start singing Call the
Press, call the news the crowd would go wild again
But she had such a powerful voice she could sing over
The, singing Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart, Come
Rain or shine, Judy’s Ollies, Pretty Girl Milking Her Cow,
Just in time and of course Somewhere Over The Rainbow
But that was never the end of the show, she’d ask the
Audience what they’d like to hear now, she would never
Leave them for less than what they came for, from
Las Vegas to Singapore…
From The Wizard of Oz to A Star Is Born, the world
Remembers and still mourns, Francis Gum otherwise
Known as JUDY GARLAND, a timeless legend like a
Journey to a Star, way up high where the blue birds

Judy short poem

I hear her giggles and my heart- leaps with beats before my kisses. She knows she puts my nerves to test- but I know she is my favorite mess. She runs around until her hair- sticks to her forehead and
