Birthdays

birthdays 

A Ladies Day not far away
from where the singing’s
never done – a place where
bliss extends its hands
in gracious greetings and
two birthdays weigh as one 


Freja Jean is just a year today
Patricia May a little more
but they are borne in harmony
by joy that joins them
each to each as only
dearest family can 


We wish you well and wear a
smile that tells our feelings
fair – I’d be there in an instant
all and am indeed a rare and
privileged fly declared upon
this celebration’s wall
