Oh voluptuous day!  You are grander than
a market basket overfull with ripe tomatoes
a woman’s hat plumed netted jeweled
a bottle of the finest driest sparkling champagne
a perilously tall cake layered with cream ganache fruit 
      shavings of chocolate
a bed laid with sixteen pillows poufs of comforter
      sheets of perfect cotton
grander even than the Eiffel Tower on a clear
      starry night in April viewed from a
      blue boat on the Seine
      an accordion player perched at the prow
Yes grander than all of this!
Here in our humble town we 
offer a standing ovation.
