A Poem for Gert

Nine is the number for me
When I say it, it gives me such glee!
It starts with an “N”
And ends with and “E”
And it’s three times as fun as a three

My order of birth is a nine
Which explains this fixation of mine
Celia is eight
Which is one short of great
So close to the finishing line

Nine lives save a cat from a bad fall
Nine players are needed for baseball
Ted Williams wore nine
And Gert dressed to the nines
When swinging with Joe in the dance hall

Happy 90th to Gert our best “goyal” (that’s Jersey-speak for girl)
From your ninth – boy, am I ever loyal
I wish you the best
Say “Hi!” to the rest
I’ll toast you tonight with Crown Royal!
