Hail to the queen

Editor’s note: The following poem is a tribute to Jackie Kasabach, who was the Wintersköl Queen of Aspen.

Dear Editor:

May your reign be prosperous and happy for you and your subjects, oh gracious Queen Jackie!

May you be showered with offerings, not the burnt kind, but something bankable.

May your crown stay put during your coronation ride and may you not be pelted with water balloons!

After your gallop through town, may you rest well and wake up the next day full of glee that you are loved and appreciated by all.

Thankful that you don’t have to be the queen of Aspen forever!

Cami Thompson and John Reiser

New Mexico
