A poem - how Frank Sinatra rose to fame 'his way', by seizing opportunity.
|Frank Sinatra rose to fame
With the usual articulate style and gentlemanly flair
Befitting a Chairman of the Board,
An enchantingly youthful and dedicated no-name
Aspiring to be the voice
And a musical phenomenon.
From modest and simple beginnings,
Old Blue Eyes gained a glittering and unique reputation
As the most gifted and talented singer,
Adored by millions of fans across the globe and
Achieving countless honors,
Enormous wealth, and legendary distinction.
Frank’s way meant a hard-nosed grind,
Unwavering resolve, and a passionate commitment
To becoming one of music’s most successful entertainers,
Living his common, unmistakable dream
With eternal hope, unparalleled drive,
And lasting determination.
Frank’s legacy as a gentleman,
A crooner, and an American icon is
The mark of a brilliant and industrious man
Who attained worldwide fame and recognition…
