Classy Lady

She was a lady of class

A voice of jazz

Who embodied pizzazz.

Intolerant of racism and sexism.

A smile that shined brighter

Than the sun

Eyes full of love and compassion

Spirit of a warrior.

Expressed herself through song


She was a humble lady

Who would mingle with high society

Not find their food appetizing and would

Seek a down home southern meal.

A queen in her own right that

Gracefully weathered many storms.
