For the Record

We celebrate the birthday of A,
Who, I’m reliably told,
Is bold
-ly going forward into her next decade
Enthusiastic and unafraid,
Confident in the slightly negotiable love of her nearest and dearest (obviously that’s
Her cats)
And supported also by a wide circle of friends both affectionate and boisterous,
At least when stuffed full of oysterous;
And so I ask you all to be upstanding and charge your glasses with wine or beer
Not only because that’s almost always a good idea
But also because we want to ring out 3 hearty cheers
To the possibility that we might be invited back to have more delicious quail* in another 10 years,
And if it’s not too much to ask may all the years and months and days in between
Be crammed full of multiple sources of happiness for darling Aileen.
