Sleep well, B.B. King

I was lucky enough to see B.B. King in Morristown, NJ in the early 2000s, sometime before 2004. Yes, it was a great show, and he was a great performer and guitarist, but what impressed me the most at the time was that whatever he’d been all his life (I just don’t know), he’d become a gentleman in all of the best senses of the word. He seemed to me like someone to emulate. We lost a truly great person today. Sleep well, B.B. King.

    1. Thanks for the reblog. BTW, I’m going to circulate notice about the collection of poems written by 16 year olds in response to Byron’s poetry to Byron scholars. I think they’d appreciate it.

      1. Great idea. Personally I prefer his poems better than Childe Harold which is more propagated. His poetry is extremely emotional and my students reacted much better than I expected. Hence, this tiny collection. It may not be perfect but they are only 16 years old and their first attempt to write poetry. I just gave them the ABABCDCD rhyming pattern and was absolutely surprised with the results.
