Birthday Song

Happy day! For a birthday song;
My kindly mother-friend lifelong.
We celebrate another year:
A celebration of good-cheer!

I’d give you trees of sapphire fruit;
I’d play for you a magic flute;
I’d pluck from heaven all her stars,
‘Til in our joined hands they’re ours.

My only gift in poverty -
A song to sing your charity,
That loads with gifts my sunlit way
To celebrate this summer day.

Happy day! For a birthday song;
Through the beautiful days and long,
The seasons brought another year,
But still the happy summer’s here!

I love you!
