A Toast to Sister André

by Dan Campion

“COVID-defying nun toasts 117th birthday with wine and prayer”

A toast to Sister André,
Who fends off ills and age
With vin rouge and her parlay
Avec Celestial Sage:

Our times need models fit for
Rebuilding virtues on.
My glass is raised, sweet Sister,
Dear André of Toulon!
