A Rare Find

In my lawn ...
and in my life.
I met some fine people.
I sold them a house.
Years and years ago.
They bought me lunch.
Many times.
And they still do.
And today
we celebrate Richard.
Who's fished the wildest rivers.
Who digs an ungarnished
Who's eyes
swell with devotion
to his Priscilla,
and his girls.
and his grandbabies.
So Happy Birthday, Rich!
A rare friend in my garden!
