The Poetry of Jimmy Stewart

In 1989 Jimmy Stewart released a book of poetry.

The book, titled Jimmy Stewart and His Poems , contains 4 poems, each of which was drawn from his real life experiences, and is preceded by an introductory essay by Jimmy explaining how he came to write it.

The poems are as follows:
The Top Step in the Hotel in Junin - about a safety hazard top step at an Argentinian hotel.
The Aberdares! - about an African mountain range in Kenya.
I'm a Movie Camera - about a camera he bought so that his daughters could film a family trip to Kenya, Africa, which was lost to a hungry hyena!
and Beau, about a beloved pet dog.

Below is a very moving reading of Beau, which Jimmy did on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
