September First

      There once was a dream,
      Then two, for a team,
Two little misses with bright eyes of blue,
       And fair as June roses,
       With cute turned up noses,
Sweet rounded lips of a ripe cherry hue;
       No love cold be greater,
       Shown by the Creator,
Than to give double, the portions to you.

Mrs. Hortense MacDougall

Poem written by my great grandmother Hortense Smythe MacDougall in the early 1900s, long before my double portions were born on September first, 2004. Happy birthday wonderful girls.

Mrs. Hortense MacDougall (as she liked to be called) was a prolific poet but it's this one that I really treasure. No twins on her side of the family, at least not at that time!

And thank you both for the birthday wishes, they had a wonderful day!
