Let’s kick my blog off with a poem about web clients

0 Comment

I gave this site a new look and then progress got stalled by a death in my family.  Someone sent me a poem about friendship but I think it could easily apply to web clients too.

Let us give thanks

Let us give thanks for a bounty of people.
For children who are our second planting, and though they
grow like weeds and the wind too soon blows them away, may
they forgive us our cultivation and fondly remember where
their roots are.

Let us give thanks;

For generous friends web clients …with hearts…and smiles as bright
as their blossoms;

For feisty friends web clients, as tart as apples;

For continuous friends web clients, who, like scallions and cucumbers,
keep reminding us that we’ve had them;

For crotchety friends web clients, sour as rhubarb and as indestructible;

For handsome friends web clients, who are as gorgeous as eggplants and
as elegant as a row of corn, and the others, as plain as
potatoes and so good for you;

For funny friends web clients, who are as silly as Brussels sprouts and
as amusing as Jerusalem artichokes;

And serious friends web clients as unpretentious as cabbages, as subtle
as summer squash, as persistent as parsley, as delightful as
dill, as endless as zucchini and who, like parsnips, can be
counted on to see you through the winter;

For old friends web clients, nodding like sunflowers in the evening-time,
and young friends coming on as fast as radishes;

For loving friends web clients, who wind around us like tendrils and hold
us, despite our blights, wilts and witherings;

And finally, for those friends web clients now gone, like gardens past
that have been harvested, but who fed us in their times that
we might have life thereafter.

For all these we give thanks.
