Sue, Aurelia, like a bright northern sky
I can’t help think of northern lights whenever you walk by
Brenda, sweet Brenda, you have a voice like gravel?
You may have mothered younger but you broke the mold
You got an education that was better than the rest
I hope that you and yours and theirs are forever blessed
I have no reservation
to making that request
Geradette, you are my partner in some Golden Girls sitcom where
All the races mix in and the pies are OJ’s
You are the only one I ever told my shoe stories
I would not have guessed that such a thing could happen had I not had this placement on
Frannie, how could I forget? You are the first one that I meet
And you have always been so thoughtful, pleasant
Sweet. I’ve never felt a burden or unwelcome or behind when I see you sitting there
I hope your reception is great.
