Treasure Island

ON THIS SEPTEMBER 21


On this September 21 comets will not be seen in the sky
Nor will there be any extra flare up in the Sun
And the day will surely pass off as usual
After making me again older
By a season of time
It`s my birthday
Sept 21.
On
Sept 21
I`ll be greeted
By kith and kin alike
And by my pals and students.
By the time the weaker sun sets in the black sky
I`ll begin to recollect the joys of a past gone for ever
And shall look into the sky to have a glimpse of 'my' Moon in rise.

PS: I am 'sorry' if I sound like wishing for your greetings on the day.

    This Sept I could not make a war for I don`t have weapons!
    I celebrated my birthday with my wife and daughter
    And on next Sep 21 I shall salute the flag of the U.N.O for sure

    September 21 is the United Nations International Day of Peace. I suspect they chose this date specifically to honour your birthday! (Report) Reply

    Oh, comets will come and go
    They wait for no birthdays dear
    Eternal nomads of outer space
    They care not for what we think or hear.........

    Dear Mr Bri, your explanation based on your reading into the obscurity of the words is highly appreciable. I appreciate your willingness to spend so much of time to type out such an elaborate account.
    Thank you Bri and I wish your wife a very happy birthday.

    Kavya, Dave Walker, Shahzia, Valerie and Joseph Anderson I thank you all for your greeting me. (Report) Reply

    dinesh, i believe sept.21 in india is sept 20 in california where it is my wife's birthday today, the 20th.
    i think i DID detect some comets AND sun flare ups! ! ! it looks like someone was chopping at this nice poem with an ax. did you notice? ? ? ?
    once again a poem has caused me to read some obscure information about words:

    kith and kin (kth n kn)
    pl.n.
    1. One's acquaintances and relatives.
    2. One's relatives.
    [Middle English kith, from Old English cth, kinsfolk, neighbors; see gn- in Indo-European roots.]
    Word History: Kith is obsolete except in the alliterative phrase kith and kin, which originally meant native land and people and first appeared about 1377 in Piers Plowman. Kith comes from the Old English noun cth, knowledge; known, familiar country; acquaintances, friends. Cth in turn comes from the Germanic noun *kunthith, a derivative of *kunthaz, known. Germanic *kunthaz was the past participle of a verb *kunnan, to know, know how, which became cunnan in Old English. The first person singular of this verb, can, is alive and well today, as is what was originally the verbal noun and adjective of cunnan, namely cunning, first appearing in the 14th century. Germanic *kunthaz itself survived in the Old English adjective cth, known, familiar, a word that became obsolete in southern English by 1600, but has survived in its negative, uncouth. Modern English couth is actually a jocular back-formation introduced by Max Beerbohm in 1896.
    I'LL FORGET MOST OF THIS IN A FEW SECONDS.

    I`ll begin to recollect the joys of a past gone for ever....but in your mind still, at least until dementia sets in.

    P.S. none wished for............and none given. but thanks for sharing. and it is NOT as a gift that i send this poem to MyPoemList. bri :) (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
