After the rain, just as the sun came,
after light years of planning and 9 months of travelling
- after the rain,
and landed fully formed, fully loved,
full of laughter, a master of light
a gifter of aromatic delight
- after that long night,
He’d waited, biding his time,
timing his arrival beautifully
bang in the middle of the lunacy,
the happy family being built at Conolly,
fitting right in, applying his tight grip
on the mum and dad who just don’t know when to quit.
Yes, Herbie befits this Butcher-family-mix.
After the rain
this Ray of grace,
this loving warrior from heaven
this beam of radiance came
and entered a place Herbie-shaped
in the heart of the Rob & Rachel space
with a seasoned, full of flavour Herbie taste
that will forever linger
here in the embrace of family Butcher.
Yes, after the rain, just as June flamed,
Welcome Herbie Butcher.
