To my beautiful nieces:
Grace, Olivia, and Ava!
I love you more than applesauce, than peaches and a plum,
Than chocolate hearts and cherry tarts and berry bubble-gum.
I love you more than lemonade and seven-layer cake,
Than lollipops and candy drops and a thick vanilla shake.
I love you more than ice cream and jelly on my toast;
For I love pies, of any size, but I love you all the most.
Happy Valentine's Day, Girls!
