Candles spell out the traditional English birt...




It’s my birthday today,

and I’m in a good mood.

I’m out for the day,

for some wine and good food.


I still feel quite young,

though my mirror would scoff;

I feel twenty three,

erm… excuse me – don’t laugh!


I’ve got a few pressies,

I’ll be staying up late,

I’m hoping there’ll be,

Champagne and a cake.


We might skip the candles,

as there’d be quite a few,

I don’t fancy a lift,

from the local fire crew!


I hope you’ve enjoyed,

my celebratory poem,

it’s just a cunning way,

to get my birthday known!


You can send me good wishes,

for my special day,

but please – no bumps….

or we’ll be here all day!!
