– offering –

A celebratory occasion is this…

simple, but celebratory.

The day is retiring,

but joy is reawakening.

With a good word to give,

and a good treat to offer,

you, young Liz, are the reminder.

What a infectious melody you play

in your song of generosity,

a delectable confectionery.

If there was not a milkshake for you to buy,

all the boys would still be brought to the yard.

If there was not a milkshake at all,

acts of love would still be expressed by you.

Thus, the occasion is worth celebrating,

a small, yet glorious event.

The shake was sweet…

the offering was sweeter.
