NOLEEN (a birthday doggerel)
Noble citizens of our land
Out with drums and trumpets
Let our voices vibrate the sands
Ears must twinge until the sun sets
Echo it to the corners of the universe:
"Noleen the queen was on this day born!"
the birds are singing, for you, a melody
the waves' too are lapping an eulogy
the wind is whistling a hearty song
the leaves are clapping along
Cut the cake, pour sweet wine
Merry! Today is yours, shine
Nature celebrates your birth
For yours is a noble heart
Happy Birthday Noleen!
Mother of many...
