Happy birthday maman

A personal message to my mother today, the one who taught me

the appreciationof gastronomie, good food in all its subtleties.

Your motherly love is an island
In life’s ocean, vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.

‘Tis bound to the North, by hope,

By patience, to the West,

By tender counsel, to the South

And to the East, by rest.

Above it like a beacon light

Shine faith, truth and prayer;

And through the changing scenes of life

I found a haven there.

You’re so havenly maman

Bon anniversaire
