Elvis was honored by the Tennessee State Legislature on March 6, 1961. Elvis showed up looking presidential in a black suit and tie and accepted the title of ‘Honorary Colonel.’ He was escorted by Governor Buford Ellington’s daughter Ann and received a tour of the governor’s mansion. “Elvis Presley Day” was proclaimed by the governor and every year after this, Elvis donated money to a list of Memphis-area charities.
Poem From POETRYSOUP.COM
THERE’S not a joy the world can give like that it takes away
When the glow of early thought declines in feeling’s dull decay;
‘Tis not on youth’s smooth cheek the blush alone which fades so fast
But the tender bloom of heart is gone ere youth itself be past.
Then the few whose spirits float above the wreck of happiness 5
Are driven o’er the shoals of guilt or ocean of excess:
The magnet of their course is gone or only points in vain
The shore to which their shiver’d sail shall never stretch again.
Then the mortal coldness of the soul like death itself comes down;
It cannot feel for others’ woes it dare not dream its own; 10
That heavy chill has frozen o’er the fountain of our tears
And though the eye may sparkle still ’tis where the ice appears.
Though wit may flash from fluent lips and mirth distract the breast
Through midnight hours that yield no more their former hope of rest
‘Tis but as ivy-leaves around the ruin’d turret wreathe 15
All green and wildly fresh without but worn and gray beneath.
Oh could I feel as I have felt or be what I have been
Or weep as I could once have wept o’er many a vanish’d scene ¡ª
As springs in deserts found seem sweet all brackish though they be
So midst the wither’d waste of life those tears would flow to me! 20
