I’m getting ready to meet with my Meemaw friends to celebrate the birthdays of Dr. Seuss and one of my Meemaw friends. I had written a first draft of a poem for my friend; and this morning I went to revise and edit it. I am so glad I did. My science was a bit off when I said it was her 65th revolution around the earth! Here is the final edition.
Shout it from the rooftops, the tree Brumbles, and Broars
Shout it out loud, ‘til your throats are all soar
Say it in email, snapchat, or twitter
Spread the word with Rainbows, Boohahs, and Glitter
It’s Marti’s 65th revolution around the sun
Time for Celebrating
Time for Fun
Sing! Dance! Fill the world with mirth!
Fill up with PIE
We’re not watching our girth
Happy birthday, dear Meemaw!
Happy birthday, sweet friend!
We celebrate you from morning ‘til day’s end!
