Treasure Island

Gordon David

(1st September 1959 / Edinburgh)

An 18th Birthday Message

Have you seen our David,
his sister Rebecca too?
They’re driving us crazy
with the funny things they do
It’s Davids birthday today,
he’s now 18 years old
Can I still tell Him that
He MUST do as He’s told?
Will this day be a day
that David will remember?
The years’ shortest day,
the 21st of December
May this day bring you
memories to treasure, to keep
Do try to stay awake David
and don’t fall asleep.
At 18 He can now,
legally, have a few beers
A Happy 18th Birthday David,
now here’s 3 cheers
A hip-hip hooray, hip-hip hooray,
hip-hip hooray
Let us all wish David

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
