Birthday - Poem by SylvaOnyema Uba

Birthday
That time of the year
When you behold
A celebration of birth

Birthday
A recurring decimal event
Dressed like timeless time
Covered with yearly covenant of life

Birthday
A boisterous building time when
Music climb to the air
Blast to crescendo

Birthday
Cake decorated like rainbow
Covered with sweet swelling sugar of life

Birthday
Heads of well wishers
Gather round the celebrant like bees

Birthday
Triumphant voices open up
The birthday anthem
H-a-a-a-pp-y b-i-r-th d-ay
