Richard refers to her as Sweet Mary,
But this is so limiting.
I think I’ll call her Musical Mary
To honor her gift of singing.
John and Richard replaced the steps
While Mary and I ran the streets.
We ate Thai on our way to Nancy’s
Beautiful woodland retreat.
There are so many things to discover;
It’s nice sharing them with a friend.
I know that I’ll miss this Mary
When her vacation comes to an end.
Mary says she likes to evoke
At least one giggle a day.
I like to be with people who have
Such a ready sense of play.
