Health and happiness to you and yours!
A wish that wings its way from heart to heart,
Pleasure's plenty, drawn from ample stores,
Poised to be converted into art.
Yet rhyme and meter are but bits of grace
Here to shape a feeling into song.
One has words one dresses up in lace
Lest for this more casual dress seem wrong.
Into greetings one pours all one's passion,
Destined for a well-worn, classic mold,
A fancy flaunting of poetic fashion
Yielding all the wish a heart can hold,
Singing, that the wish be sweetly told.
