  • a single sprout
    from a story seed
    planted on a birthday read

    a gift from you
    from a birthday cheer
    gave my soul a bit of veneer

    an inspiration
    from across the world
    gave happiness as the day unfurled

    namaste Mr. Ben may you enjoy many more birthdays with sweet surprises
