    A Birthday Poem for Dottie Ingordo-Shirreffs
    (August 10, 2011)

    Dottie’s the one who gives Zenyatta a voice
    And makes Zenyatta.com the blog of choice.
    Dottie composes with much wit and charm
    So Z can tell fans of her life on the farm.

    As Z transitions from one role to another
    And undertakes to become a mother,
    Dottie channels Z’s news
    To the many who love her,
    Easing those “I-miss-Z” blues.

    With her diary we suffer less sorrow
    ’Cause we still are part
    Of Z’s tomorrow
    And she speaks to us heart to heart.

    When a new post arrives, we all hurry
    To read our dear Z’s soliloquy
    With her wonderful life philosophy.
    We pause to ingest
    Because it’s the best.
    Then there’s a flurry
    As to our keyboards we scurry
    And rush to reply,
    For we all have something to say---
    Such a bright spot in our day!

    Then we return
    Again and again to learn
    What others have written--
    With Z’s diary we’re all clearly smitten.

    Yes, with Z now in Kentucky,
    We sure are lucky
    That Dottie’s her scribe
    And that she makes us part of her tribe,
    For at Zenyatta.com, the DOT COM that you see
    Refers to the COM-munity
    DOT-tie has founded
    Where we all reside
    And all that is good can abide.
    We are made part of “Zenyatta’s connections”
    And truly feel
    Strong bonds of affection.
    Here we share Zenyatta’s story
    And relive her amazing glory.
    We share horse racing lore---
    But also much more.
    When we’re feeling adrift,
    Here we get our uplift.
    When we are weary with worry,
    It’s here that we hurry.
    Here we can share
    With people who care.

    So let’s lift a stein of good lager---
    For Zenyatta, make that a Guinness---
    And drink a toast to our Dottie
    To show her,
    Just how much gratitude is in us!

    Hoof, hoof, hoof-ray
    For Dottie the Great!
    Hoof, hoof, hoof-ray,
    She’s truly first rate!
    Hoof, hoof, hoof-ray
    For dear Dottie on her birthday!
