A song for the singer was sought for and found;

Now hear how it echoes and here goes around.

From posting to posting it hastes forth and flies,

With joy in the fingertips, light in the eyes.

"Mirthday! Worthday! Birthday!" I hear---

A song out of thinkings bursting with cheer.

The best words have found me, the rest do I know;

I'll try to unwind me in their kind, calm glow.

A night of relaxing in birthday-time song

Is food for the singer and strength for the strong.

And words are not wasted on he who hears clear

A song out of thinkings bursting with cheer.

Thank you, Michael. It was.

It was....a.......wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day!

Lit for a while with a bit of a smile.....

Up e-ver-y road, down e-ver-y way!

And since I did work, I did earn me some pay!

And since I did write, 'twas a fabulous night!

'Twas a dear, cheer, sheer delight!

Brian's Birthday Bee

When Brian's little birthday bee

buzzed along so merrily

humming the birthday tune

His drone, soft and deep

put me gently to sleep...

until he bee-latedly stung me!

-- Rose Lake

Happy BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-lated birthday Brian!
