Virginia Wylie: Chutzpah

This is the first of several poems I have written about Barbara, our activities director, in appreciation for all she adds to our lives.

Hurrah for our friend Barbara
Barbara’s here, there, and everywhere
She comes to us and stays to care
She leads our games and play
In her happy, energetic way
We know she’s always on our side
Our hearts claim her with joy and pride
Our Barbara’s full of chutzpah…
Hurrah for Barbara, Barbara!
