The Toast


May you always have art to charm
your days, a sensible hearth
and friends as dependable as gravity.
May the wind and creatures be as music
to your evenings alone and may your dreams
leave you renewed.  May you have an appaloosa 
to ride the outline of blue hills, and nothing 
that sickens, and no black sticks.

                                  James Bertolino
