Dear Mr. Stewart/NaPoWriMo Day 3

Dear Mr. Stewart,

The first time I wrote you
was in 1989.
I was so amazed to
receive a letter back!
You were so gracious
and so kind.

Now, you see, Mr. Stewart,
what I really wish is that
there were movie stars
like you today–
talented, faithful and true,
people who loved gently,
even your old dog, Blue.

Mr. Jimmy Stewart, sir,
I just wanted you to know,
you’re still my favorite
movie star who became
a poet too!

Give my love to Cary, John,
Maureen and Katherine,
Audrey, Henry and James.
I hope to meet you all some day…

Peace and love,

Day 3’s challenge was to write a fan letter to a celebrity, past or present, in the form of a poem. I really did write Jimmy Stewart a fan letter in 1989 and he really did answer it! He is the only celebrity I’ve ever written. I think I chose wisely.
