First Annual "A Poem For Sarah Palin " Contest Attracting Magnificent Entries #1

The response to the inaugural "A Poem For Sarah Palin" has been tremendous, especially in the quality of the presentations. The announcement, both here and at the highly regarded Examiner site by the effervescent  Devonia Smith seems to have brought out the muse in people who have jumped at the chance to express their deep appreciation of Governor Palin.


Here is an example, by entrant "MYSTERIOUS MAVEN" just one of many, and by no means an indication by me that it has preference over other entries-rather it is an illustration of the depth of emotion and heights of creativity Palin has inspired.

A frontiers Ode to the future


Dancing on a glacier of American fortitude she escapes
Scattering a bouquet of ice into a flowering landscape
A frontiers Ode to the future
On the echo of rural towns her courage roams free
Against the rocks meandering the river banks she fires the flare for all to see
A frontiers Ode to the future
Guided by the Trig of willows, the Piper climbs through the air.
On the right wing, a familiar sunrise over Bristol Bay is near
A frontiers Ode to the future
The track of liberty stands on the waters edge
Beneath the roaming salmon jumping the gated ledge
A frontiers Ode to the future
To the left an ominous wind signals a directional change
She hesitates on a prayer, whispers to Todd - strange
A frontiers Ode to the future
As a tear flutter from her face
She cannot deny the impending pace
A frontiers Ode to the future
She knows the end is near and fast approaching
For this journey to continue she must abate the fear encroaching
A frontiers Ode to the future
For liberty to remain standing
She must soar above the hard landing
A frontiers Ode to the future
A frontiers Ode to the future
