It started early when Jessie dropped by
To leave a birthday lasagna surprise.
Orange rolls, fruit salad, asparagus souffle
Were part of the way Anny started my day.
Tulips brought sunshine in spite of the snow,
And Easter eggs filled with things I didn't know
Anny believed she had learned from me--
Things that perhaps I didn't see.
Lunch at the Owens was such a treat!
Then time with the Bartletts--always sweet!
Pie at the Steeds, I just couldn't resist!
Their great conversations--not to be missed!
Family and friends also joined in the day
With phone calls and cards from far, far away.
On this Easter birthday I'm grateful, it's true
That my life is so full of people like you!
