Resolved Question: Will you read my few
I just heard the news another
jazz great died a the weekend
she was a great singer, mother
and writer on whom we could depend
there won't be another new tune
from the darling abbey lincoln
Not to worry, we hear her croon
what will tomorrow bring home
She was as tender as a rose
she came a long way from st louis
a wonderful woman in repose
of this no one's speaking phoey
she'll spin the windmills of your mind
she'll give you all the best advice
and help if you're trying to unwind
she had the most wonderful life
a titan behind the jazz mike
she leaves behind a legacy
that many in future will like
after our disconsolacy
