Preparing for the dinner fete
Bought fish, veg, cake and wine
Suspense meets calm as time appears
At last our love combines
Your sons – maturing to great men
quickly they get settled
Our daughters – browsing internet
join us for tete-a-tete.
Supper’s ready, we take a seat
Salmon is smoky yum
But wait, asks Nate, where’s the kimchi?
Just happen to have some!
More great conversation is had,
Boys give chase to the pooch,
While violins ser’nade,
Us three take sips of hooch.
As all good things come to an end,
The boys get quite tired,
You gather kids and things, we hug,
I am left inspired.
