A POEM & VIDEO
May a Bourree game be waiting,
May there be crawfish in your nets
And gumbo in your pot.
May the Sac-au-Lait be biting
At your favorite fishing spot.
May God’s sun be shining brightly
When you need its cheerful rays.
May the oak tree shade you gently
On those lazy bayou days.
When all your work is through.
May the fais-do-do bring pretty girls,
To toss a wink at you.
And when your time is over,
And your place on earth is gone,
May you waltz right into heaven
To the tune of “Jolie Blonde.”
