Jack Barry who was born on April 17th
Born a day before and did succeed–
He was a great friend and artist indeed.
He took me to lunch when I first came
To the “Artist Hut”.
Yes, Jack had a studio in Flamingo Park
Next to railroad tracks where dogs always barked.
He did all kinds of style painting–
Fresco he was known for—
I have his one big painting by my door.
He was a great storyteller and a U.S. Vet-
He had a very interesting life of all the people
I have met.
I inherited his butterfly necklace people do see–
When I wear it around my neck all sparkly.
Thanks Jack for being a friend to me.

Poem Dedicated to Jack Barry
April 17, 1948- Aug. 7, 2013
Light bulbs flash and celebrity smiles
all for a photo in ‘Fashion & Style’.
Now at Palm Beach Today
photographer Sue Chevalier
snaps photos of Donald & Melania
on the morning of Easter Sunday.
Just around the same time that year
Melania conceived a gift that was very dear.
Now Sue heard the news and never did brag
she was not a squealer who makes money on rag mags.
Unlike a photographer who heard “You’re fired” with no tears
selling photos of Donald’s wedding so cavalier.
Of course Sue was not at their wedding
Sue was not near—
she was in Bora Bora
having fun times with good cheer.

Bright colored flowers start to bloom
with colored chalk in the activity room.
Residents use chalk to paint their flowers
that come to life–
I place strings at top of painting like a kite.
There finished chalk art hangs on their walls–
they are happy I shared my chalk–
they had a ball.
