Something about blueberries fat and fine
and the taste of full summer in the wintertime.
Something about relief and slaking your thirst
when the wet heat of August can’t get any worse.
Now that you’ve been through a number of years
(plenty of giggles and plenty of tears)
building this house up from its horrors
sharing in joys and sharing in sorrows;
We celebrate you two sweet hearts,
already practiced at both the planning and the doing part,
at gathering your friends, families, and cats in
and knowing when it is time for relaxing.
Your blueberry jam is stored on many shelves
and if you run low, I will bring some over myself.
