Poem for Becky Bain, draft no. 1

Becky Bain deserves a poem

and not one that is just ho-hum.

She's been a friend

in times of need;

She knows her flowers 

and her weeds.

She's been through a lot

but that hasn't stopped her--

she became a role model

for both of her daughters.

Fragrant, loving, thoughtful...


likes her beer clean

and her plants hardy

The perfect friend to take to the beach

or to trimming fronds from 

office trees.
