Forever young
In a tri-tone maze of life;
Bordered by
Stunted walls
With safety corners:
Such was my youth.
The keepers of the garden,
The tenders of the lawn,
They loved us so much.
Trays of morsels,
Four round a chalice mount
Arranged for mutual
Festive menagerie behind
Wooden glass,
Laughing at Jerry,
“Who’s daddy’s boy?”
Commune of love,
You both gave all
Receiving to this very day
Our heartfelt thanks
And admiration.
Relish that.
