Birthday Song from Jeff



Birthday Song
 
Happy day! For a birthday song;
My kindly mother-friend lifelong.
We celebrate another year;
A celebration of good-cheer!

I’d give you trees of sapphire fruit;
I’d play for you a magic flute;
I’d pluck from heaven all her stars,
‘Til in our joined hands they’re ours.

My only gift in poverty -
A song to sing your charity
That loads with gifts my sunlit way
To celebrate this summer day!

Happy day! For a birthday song;
Through the beautiful days and long,
The seasons brought another year,
But still the happy summer’s here!

I love you!

  4. The third stanza displeased me, so I rewrote it:

    My only gift in poverty -
    A song to sing your charity
    That fills with gifts my empty hands,
    And plants a rose where summer stands.

    Now, it's perfect!
