A Birthday Song for Valida – Kyrielle Sonnet – September 26, 2015

Celebrating life and living –
I sing for you this birthday song!
I sing of the love you’ve given –
Best wishes the whole yearlong!

Off to the party now we’ll go
[And early to avoid the throng]
We’ll sing and toast as candles glow –
Best wishes the whole yearlong!

A whole weekend of partying!
Our happiness thus we’ll prolong –
Eating, laughing and carolling:
Best wishes the whole yearlong!

Here’s to Valida – poetess …
May your muse be forever strong!
Three cheers for our loving hostess –
Best wishes the whole yearlong!

Celebrating life and living
Best wishes the whole yearlong!
