In honor of Thanksgiving and the revival of Gilmore Girls, I reminisce about my sadness at the end of the series and my thankfulness for the upcoming four-part event that will bring these characters back to life.
Ode to Gilmore Girls
O! lovely Lorelai and real rad Rory
How I’ve truly loved your story.
I didn’t watch when you first began,
But soon after became your biggest fan.
In season 2, the fashion show
Was the episode that made me know
That together you and I would grow.
Through Dean and Jess and Naked Guy too,
At Yale and in your Chilton blue,
Paris Gellar: foe or friend?
With Logan and Lucy in the end,
Rory, how I’ll miss you so;
Short hair, long hair, bangs, or no,
You raised me up when I was low.
First Max then Jason and then Luke,
Christopher was just a fluke.
Referencing the Donners and Godot,
Smart and single- you ruled the show.
Laughing all the while were we
At banter more and more witty
Than I could ever hope to be.
And there were Sookie and Michel,
Their two-percent milk and béchamel;
Richard, Emily, their panic room too,
Mrs. Kim, Jackson, Kirk, Lulu.
So much joy and happiness,
How do you measure, or do you guess?
Without you here, how much less?
O! Gilmore Girls, you’ve gone away,
But on my DVD you’ll play;
Seasons one through eight I own,
The only comfort now that’s known.
But grieving now, I miss you so
Life seems dark without this show,
But where you led, I will follow.
