The meal, whether earned or grown,
Prepared for yourself or by another,
Is one of the greatest gifts of all.
Intention that turns labor into delight,
Into anticipation, preparation,
Hurry, and timing for moments to memory.
Set on clean plates, in wonderful presentation
Framed with silverware and folded napkins.
Once eaten, will disappear into joy and satisfaction,
As all the greatest gifts, do happen.
