Pens! Stairs! And Cake!

Happy Birthday Terra!

She needs to borrow colored pens!
She’s miffed she can’t go upstairs!
No, she hasn’t read much of anything,
But she’s aware of those three bears.

She’s only in third grade:
At Matthews Elementary School.
But now looms her next birthday:
Colored pens or three-tier cake would be cool.

She’s the third of a trio of sisters:
A faire maiden of Fablehaven!
She may, today, be the smallest,
But it’ll be understood if you gave in.

To the Lady of Albert Lane,
Blonde with eyes of blue:
Hope you get those necessary pens,
And A Very Happy Birthday To You!


About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
