One Single Impression: Meld

.
Play the cards you draw;
standing room only

I drew my cards counted my meld
I was happy with what was dealt

An ace of beauty blessed my wife
a king of nature gave me life
the queen of soul painted my heart
a Jack of humor spiced my part

The Joker came to make me smile
comedy of life filled the aisles
