An Ode to Tilly Bud: the worst birthday poem ever

1 Oct

I’ll blog details about yesterday tomorrow; but today, here’s the best poem I’ve ever read 🙂

Janie's Place

happy birthday banner

Thinking of you today, dear Tilly, and sending sincerest wishes:

May your day be filled with good friends, loving family and slobbery dog kisses,

May your box of Maltesers over floweth,

And may the sun shine where ever you go-eth!

May your tea kettle freely flow,

May the pile of crumpled wrapping paper grow.

May you grow old and wise,

(Though I feel a need to clearly emphasize,

That’s not to imply that you are still young),

And have travels far-flung.

For ever and always, I hope life treats you well,

In short, have a birthday that’s totally swell.

    We do agree that Janie’s place
    Has done you fairly proud –
    Now go ahead and show your face
    Reciting it out loud!

    But it is handy that this piece
    Is showing so much wit, oh,
    For all our efforts we now cease,
    And simply add in ditto.

      A subscription to Mslexia, two poetry books and an unusual necklace in the form of a triple cross in three types of gold. Spoiled or what, hey? 🙂

    Oh dear, I am late for the party. I hope the day was spectacular with plenty of celebrating. Love all the poetry.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
