Limerick – Birth

On the wonderful day of your birth
I was the happiest person on Earth
Now you teach me each day
In your own special way
How much this life truly is worth

          1. Ah! So I *didn’t* make you blush. It’s Ok, I’ll survive 🙂
            But I do mean it, I know that I will never write like you do and it is a good thing, because I need to work on getting *my voice* heard. But you do give me something to look up to. And I thank you.

            1. I do get embarrassed by compliments – it’s just not in my nature to blow my horn about what I can do, whatever that is. I prefer just getting on and doing it. This has caused me some problems at work (and in interviews) tbh. That’s me, writing or otherwise.

              But yeah, this is just “my voice”. I work on my poems all the time, posting almost every day. Silly, playful and rhythmic, with a love of language, I guess (*shuffles off again*)

              1. Yes, that’s it. You’ve described them pretty accurately. Managing to convey such depth with hidden behind a silly playfulness… It’s quite a feat 🙂
                Learning to accept compliments takes time, but it can be done. I am getting better at it too, slowly but surely.

                So I’ll keep them coming, so you get used to simply say thank you and accept the praise 🙂

  1. “Hello, Hallmark Cards? I know this chap who writes the most evocative verse. Yes, he can start straight away! Me? I’m his Fairy GodSister. Cheers”

      1. Now you’re talking… So, all of us fan gals and guys need to request such a card and when they say they don’t have one, we simply bite their heads off! 😉

    1. It’s such a great day to have a birthday! A friend at work once showed me a picture of his “four year old lad”… it was a six-foot tall teenager, born on 29th Feb! 🙂
