(For Donall) My Birthday


You came to me,
your smile embracing me,
your arms opening to hold me

and I, a year older since yesterday,
was lifted, raised from the day's grey,

catching the rainbow
that freely flowed from you,

bathing in the light
of your energy,

so glad of your bright presence,
on my birthday.

    To be 'lifted, raised from the day's grey'. The grey days are so cleverly juxtaposed to a colorful rainbow. It is a lifting optimistic poem. Happy Birthday dear Jan! BR, one (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
