A Tribute to Oprah

Merrily did I sit, a cup of tea in hand,
With Oprah to show me a world afar,
O’ Oprah, Pole Star ! ( Guiding Light)
Dear Oprah, you are a Super Star.
Oprah’s operas are best by far…
She voices others tears, and pain:
This Oracle of us all.
Her voice reaches so far:
Yonder, beyond the mountains,
the hills, and the seven seas.
Listen, there she comes,
A million voices without a voice of her own;
Fool am I, sorrowful to see her depart,
For I know, tomorrow is not far.
And Again,
Merrily did I sit, a cup of tea in hand,
With Oprah to show me a world afar.

Hi again,

Oprah is pretty amazing. I've tried to put my finger on what makes her so likable and haven't really succeeded. But I do think she is talented and don't begrudge her the success she has achieved.
