My Sister's 60th


Born in nineteen forty nine
Ma wee sister look just fine
Sixty years have flown right past
She’s still a great wee lass

You, me mum and dad
Loving memories of the past
Picnic days in Rooken Glan Park
Walking home when it was dark

With your bus pass in the post
For you to roam from cost to cost
Looking out for pensioners deal
And pulling behind your trolley on wheels

So happy birthday
I raise my glass to wish good cheer
And aura best for another year

    Nice poetic birthday wish! It is a great occasion. I too join to wish her many more happy returns of the day! This only reminds me of the words of a great Tamil Poet, 'the whole world is our place and all our our friends' (Report) Reply

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow

But mark the fate of faces;
