January 20th: My Birthday


Oh what a pleasant day!
Today marks the birthday of a legend
A legend in me.

My birthday falls on a Sunday
A very special day,
A day in which God rested off of his creation.

This is the day the Lord has made
And it is precious in my sight
For indeed I know I'm blessed.

Today is my birthday
Today is Sunday
Today rain falls for the very first time this year.

Is it not pleasant?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
