A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom

Hello everyone! I haven't blogged as much as I've wanted while on vacation in D.C. because, well, I've just been having too much fun! But I promise to do a day by day recap (with pictures) when I return next week. I leave tomorrow to fly to NYC-- I'm very excited but sad at the same time to leave my friends and all the new friends I've met while on vacation.

In the meantime, my good friend Simone who I've been visiting wrote a poem in honor of my visit and posted it on her blog. It's also here below. Enjoy!

Bed at two, awake at ten
Our eyes are too droopy to start the day again
The pink princess is fast asleep, unmoved as a hidden forest log
I, the hostess, upset for missing my morning jog
SIGH, nothing is new under the sun
We raven-haired ladies have been friends since before twenty-one

Bed at two, awake at ten
Our eyes are too droopy to start the day again
I peek through the creak in her bedroom door like a timid rat
The sleeping beauty angers quickly at my loud tip-tap
Yet birthday adventure commences in light-hearted cheer
The merriment perpetuated with wine, you know she hates beer

Bed at two, awake at ten
Our eyes are too droopy to start the day again
Much Ado About Nothing, a steel-plated lunch, and Monticello
And conversations of suitors and disappointing fellows
Alas, we despair not for we have each other
Holidays like this, good food, and two Middle-Eastern mothers.

    Ha! I KNEW you gals were staying up late talking about boys!

    I hope I wasn't put in the "disappointing" category.
