Travel, tap dance, tulips, teak
Heartbeats, hugs, hotels
Art, affection, aunts and ale
Nachos, notes from bells
Kites and kittens, kudos, kin
Scenery and seasons
Grandmas, glitter, grass and green
Ireland for all reasons
Vino, visits, veggies, vests
Ice cream, Israel, irons
Nests and nickels, neatness, nuts
Gargoyles and environs

Every item I’ve just named
On my list of favorites ranks.
So for these and so much more,
On this day, I offer thanks.
