Celebrating Karyn's (IndianiaIrish) Birthday
"Happy Birthday, Kar!" by mountainwriter49
o 0 o

Today’s a very special day for Kar
as she begins another year.
For just a moment, she’ll reflect upon
her yesterdays with tears of joy
as she recalls her father’s love and how
he saved her magic silver wand.
She’ll laugh about her crazy sister’s deeds;
they’re like the Lucy-Ethel team!
But Kar is focused on tomorrow’s light
in which her friends and family
will always thrive in love and happiness.
As Bacchus fills her cup with wine
she’ll play some Muse and then begin to scribe
most wondrous prose and brilliant verse.
‘Tis through her gifted pen the ink will flow
upon the parchment of her heart.
So very Happy Birthday, my dear friend.
I raise my glass to you and sing--
please have a happy thirty-nine point twenty-four!
