Here’s to never, forever and now

Ash and emblazoned tales

Here’s to all these times allow

Feats and when we fail

Here’s to there and theirs to hear

Salute life’s lust for breath

Here’s to blood, heart soul and tear

Birth, life, rest and death

Here’s to last year’s language

Set in stone beneath our feet

Here’s to cumbersome baggage

Left as refuse on the street

Here’s to an abundance of critical thought

The pass of intolerance and hate

Here's to the transition of battles fought

From bloodshed to debate

Here’s to our correspondences

Our altruist tendency

Let’s celebrate our differences

While setting ourselves free

Here’s to age’s wisdom new

To heirs our home, this host

Here’s to you and here’s to me

Proposed is my toast

      So pleased you enjoyed it.

      My great grandparents were Browns. We may be related somewhere down the line.

      Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful evening.

      Brown is technically my maiden name---my paternal grandparents emigrated from Scotland, so mine would be Catholic Scottish Browns. I am now married to a woman who took my name, so there are 2 Mrs. Browns here (hence my profile name). :-)

      Have a great day---Happy April Fools' Day!

      Cool. My grandpa used to say that the Raineys were Scottish and they dropped the Mc form McRainey to help them get jobs, but now he says he doesn't think it's true. I plan to research it some day. My Browns were Welsh.
