Carole Lombard~by Neil Perry



Carole Lombard

There are times when time does haunt
And halt me like a memeory,
‘To be or not to be’ her last film
Reminds me of that tragedy –

Of her wanting to patch it up
With Clark, on an ill fated flight
To meet him, but never did,
But the dark of the night

Was all that was there to greet him,
He was never the same after that, –
Her cut down in her prime
For love. that could not wait.

Note: Carole Lombard (1908 -42) was an American actress married to Clark Gable between 1939-42, and was tragically killed in a plane crash, trying, as the story goes, to patch up a row she had with her husband before. She was not only beautiful, but was a definitive actress of screwball comedies; She ranks among American Institutes greatest stars of all time.
