After she gained her composure, she called her son and thanked him. She then took the poem and drove to each of her closest friends’ homes and showed them her precious gift.

Corporate Events



We provided an original verse for a theme lunch for approximately 150 convention planners from across the United States. The stated theme for the lunch was “Simple Pleasures”. The picnic lunch was catered in a grove of pecan trees and JeanMarie Welch read the poem at the event. An Earth colored copy of the verse decorated with orange and blue raffia was also placed at each place setting as a keepsake gift.



The verse is an excerpt from a poem written to honor the president of a US subsidiary of a major international corporation. The Palm was 30 lines in length and was read at the company’s 10 year anniversary celebration.

Members of the family, including two beloved pet dogs, were mentioned at the end of the poem.
