A Limerick To Esther Leclerc On Her Birthday - Poem by Chuck Audette

tis the day after St Paddy's Day
and I've a few words to say - if I may?
to a person new-old
with a heart of pure gold
so to Esther a Happy Birthday!

(it was actually on the holiday, so this is truly fated to be a wish belated)

    Dear old Esther was my friend.
    No word from her in ages.
    Her memory now is kept alive
    thanx to these PH pages.

    My dear if you should read these lines
    think back to those days when
    we shared our verses and our rhymes.
    Let's do it all again.

    I hear you say that was a day
    a long, long time ago.
    But don't forget your PH friends,
    and know we miss you so.

    Robert

    'with a heart of pure gold' - that line alone defines Esther. A lovely, limerick Chuck that says a lot in so few words. Happy belated birthday Est! Nothing less than a 10 - this is Esther we're talking about! Justine :) (Report)Reply
