Ode to Our Matriarchal Artist: "Happy 87th Birthday, Nonni!!"
Creativity runs deep,
Throughout the family,
And Nonni heads the clan in this,
As well you all can see.
She paints and sculpts,
In a realistic style.
She builds, makes jewelry,
All art worthwhile.
Her energy abounds despite her age,
No adventure or topic is too trite,
She holds her own in any deal
Her tenacity's not slight.
She stands, a beacon to us all,
As well as family sage.
We wish her best in all she does
Especially at her age.
(Please, excuse the delay. Her birthday was actually March 03. I had a time finding the photos that were hidden on my computer.)
