Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page’s girlfriend Scarlett Sabet detailed visiting Jack Kerouac’s grave with Page, and how emotional it was, in a new Instagram post. You can view a photo they took below.
“One of my new poems from Camille, this poem, my love song, love poem, eulogy, memorial, searching questioning statement and longing, my poem ‘For Jack’. I thought on March 12th on what would’ve been Jack Kerouac’s 97th birthday I would share this poem with you. I first performed it in Jack’s hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts at The Town And The City Festival in October 2018. It was a quick, delirious stay in Lowell.
My hotel for that trip was a short walk from the flower shop where Jimmy and I bought the lilies and roses that we laid respectfully and with love on Kerouac’s grave in 2017. I reference those flowers in this poem. Poor Jack. Give your loved ones a hug, read Jack’s words and remember life is beautiful, terrifying, vast and precious. Happy birthday Jack. ❤️”
The poem says, “You whose grave I gave my roses, lilies, boot heels and tears.”
She previously wrote on Instagram about the grave visit, “‘And don’t you know God is Pooh Bear…'”
“It was actually very sad, I cried, I wish he’d been around longer to see the bigger picture, how loved he and his work came to be. X.”
There is a 46-year age gap between Page and Sabet. Page recently attended a poetry event with Sabet for her new release ‘Camille.’
