My sons don't give gifts
much less take the time
or have a right brain
to imagine a rhyme.

So I had a big clue
Josh's new beau was more
when a present arrived
from a paper store.

Not just lovely feel
but artistic design -
stationery made special
for the Bellfry of mine.

You showed your true colors
with green and with blue.
I'm so looking forward
to a lifetime with you.
