Cards with Friends

When setting up Bridge in the Box,

I thought it would be nice,

To play with friends and friends of friends,

Some bridge – with wine on ice!

 

With none of those competitive,

and fear-inducing games,

which many would associate

with bridge in other frames.

 

To be a challenge to the mind,

Not fear-inducing war,

against the people that you love,

not something you abhor!

 

There are the clubs that you can find,

And many can be fun,

but playing in a drafty hall,

would not pull in this one!

 

So, kitchen bridge is what I like,

with three or more dear friends,

to spend a deuce of gentle hours,

and stretch the mind and mend.
