cartoon drawing of John Dyess by Brian Gauss

I worked at Scott Air Force Base as a designer/illustrator from 1962 until 1966,and left to work at an illustration studio in St. Louis,MO.I left in March and married my first wife Mary in April. I had met her  while working at Scott AFB. My department director Brian Gauss drew this cartoon on the cover of a good-bye card , and wrote a poem on the inside where the artists I worked with signed their name. I understand the reference to Mary had a little lamb,but don’t understand the meaning of the poem. This is the first of a series of drawings of me by other artists during a fourteen year period.
