‘Happy Birthday’ My Dear Sister, Clemencia!


The strong-girl of our home!
She did the hardest chores;
And helped mother at work,
And locked the house’s doors.

She was a simple dame;
But received all the blame;
She yearned for love and name;
Life played a cruel game!

She loved to talk her heart,
And learned on own some art;
Unlucky on her part,
She remains right from start.

She is an Aquarian;
Devoted Marian;
She leads a spinster’s life,
Alone, amidst much strife.

May God bless my sister,
On her birthday today!
And grant her will-power
To walk in Heaven’s way.

Dedicated to my dear elder sister,
Miss. Noeline Mary Clemencia, CBE.

When the hours of Day are numbered,

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
