 Y&R, The Young and the Restless, Acting At Its Best; Yes Visual Poem  




                               Effervesce Award                       





Excerpt:  ...Y&R actors are soap opera royalty



And, are absolutely, dedicated to their craft



They display dramatic realism, even though



It's all directed from a scripted draft



Each Y&R story thread is carefully woven



With exciting twists and turns  



Every episode is distinctively



Chock-full of lessons to learn



Y&R is a soap opera dynasty



The one others emulate



So as to also become, first rate



It is the real, soap sizzle



Of daytime television, all done, effortless



Hence, Y&R is honored



With a special award, The Effervesce...





Excerpt from Y&R, The Young and the Restless, Acting At Its Best; Yes
