Maintainer of our household happiness,
Whose taste pervades and domesticity
Provides for our well-being, we now bless
You dearly on this Anniversary.

You are our dearest Kimmie, and your love
And generosity of heart touch us
Each day to demonstrate the beauty of
Your kindly spirit, which was ever thus.

So sensitive to others in their needs,
Your generosity extends its care
And selflessly assists with gentle deeds—
A cherished ancient virtue now too rare.

The paragon of sweet and lovely ways,
You are the cheerful sunshine of our days.
