Remembering a Lesser-Known Carroll

This Christmas, Carroll fills our hearts
with countless memories
of fifty years on Sesame Street.
America agrees.

The man who gave Big Bird his voice
(and gave the Grouch his too)
has left us through the door of death.
His much-charmed life is through.

For Carroll Spinney, kids came first.
He loved to help them learn.
And as we mourn Jim Henson's friend,
for simpler days we yearn.

When puppets called us to pretend
on streets within our mind
and we watched with our little ones
the keys to being kind.

Yes, Carroll earned his Oscar
and he earned his Big Bird, too.
The voice whose face we rarely saw
spoke love to me and you.

Peace to his memory!

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
