Youth Night Rose City Toastmasters
By David Smith March 18, 2010
Youth night at Toastmasters, a refreshing sight;
On March break, kids performed so right.
Three well rehearsed speeches, no notes that were used.
They gave their all; the audience was amused.
My granddaughter was there.
Her light did shine.
The Spark Plug award; for her creative time;
Joy filled the room as youth took centre stage.
And very sad overtones as a life turned its last page.
The loss of a wife; and a development of skill;
Like sweet and sour; the mix was the thrill.
Dwelling on hope;
And accepting a loss,
Rollercoaster of life really comes across.
Thanks be through Toastmasters to channel emotion.
On Thursday nights, the planning, the devotion.
Rose City, the club, with its highs and lows;
Thanks to its members as we develop and grow.
