How can we begin to enumerate
All the good features about Genevieve?
Although they would take so long relate
It’s something worthwhile, I believe.

She is patient, she is helpful, she is kind
The elder sister everyone would like,
She enjoys a joke and has a good mind,
Can swim like a fish and is a wow on her bike.

She’s a dancer to music, a reader
In depths; helps in the house where she can;
She’s right there whenever you need her
And for problems can think up a cool plan.

We wish her health and love and happiness
And all the good fortune that one can perceive
Joining with others this day to bless
The birthday girl, our smiling Genevieve.
