  1. Wonderful tribute–fourteen seasons compressed into five and a half stanzas and a changeable chorus, with delightful comments by the narrator to punctuate it all! Glad your camp-in-the-pines was more productive than mine!

    • Thanks for the compliment, SKL. Part of the curse of being a mostly AU writer is the compelling need to occasionally remind people that I CAN do other things and produce something they might actually want to read for a change. Camp was a great motivator, even if the s’mores were a little lackluster… 😉

  2. Oh. My. Gosh. This is terrific! I vote we sing it to the tune of Marty Robbins’ “El Paso” — not sure if the chorus fits but the verses are perfect. And JC, I do mean perfect. I would read this with a bear, I would read this on the stair, I would read this anywhere!

    • You’re right about El Paso, Sandspur, one of the all time great western songs and one of the first I remember from childhood. I was humming the whole time I was writing! Thanks for the lovely endorsement. Your check is in the mail. 😉

    • Yes, something for everyone. That’s one of the things that made it so universal, right? Thanks for reading, Q. 🙂

  3. No greater love hath no fan, than that of the Cartwrights (no matter what we put them through in our imaginations). Awesome tribute.

  4. Has anyone else figured out the song to which this poem can be sung? 🙂

    GREAT tribute to the Cartwrights.
