For her thoughts I’d give a penny
Or even a nickel or maybe a quarter
To hear from my good friend Jenny
Her brain a sponge, her will of mortar.
Today is her observed birthday
Wish her well: touching or funny
She’s listened for the past three days
To my mistidings, good friend Jenny.
As a librarian, her voice ain’t tinny
But assuring behind the reference desk
Cardigans create my good friend Jenny
A strong silhouette statuesque.
In all the world there aren’t too many
Wonderful friends like my good friend Jenny.
