Andy


Image: sourced from google images

Legend of his time
Had helped the Osmonds to fame
The Moon River man

Won accolades but
at one battlefield lost to
the scourge of men-folks

Note: Sadly we learned of the demise of the great singer, Andy Williams on September 25,2012.  According to reports it was prostate cancer or some complications relating to bladder cancer

Written for Haiku Heights’, September Heights Day 29 P# 188 with prompt – battlefield-

  3. Cancer is an awful load of crap
    Wish they'd make it take a dirt nap
    But instead gets us all in one way or another too
    Nice tribute by you

  4. A lovely tribute to Andy Williams and it's a great loss to the entertainment industry. May we one day find the secret weapon to subdue this very dark and dangerous enemy where many have lost their lives.

    The true silent killer
    Should have known earlier
    Help could well then be sought
    All the sufferings to avoid
