A Birthday


Good morning, girls! And John too!
It's your special birthday. What do we do?

We will have all your special food for you.
You are ten, and the skies are blue.

We'll put candles on your cake - just you see!
You can make a wish, or maybe three.

We will go to the place you like best,
and your dream car will do the rest.

The hardest thing you'll ever have done
is pick out your best-liked color, and not just one!

So Happy Birthday, my children three,
and may God's angels watch over thee!

Now your day is at an end, my dear.
I hope you have another good and joyful year.
