‘Happy Birthday, Mum! '


Your ninety years’ of love
To children and all, prove
The mother great and wife,
That you had been all life!

You slogged all life
As mother, wife;
With dogged days rife,
Frequent strife!

Another Marian,
Now nonagenarian;
What wisdom fills your heart,
In things, you’ve done from start!

God bless you mother dear,
And help you better hear,
And keep you from all fear,
And any earthly tear!

‘Happy Birthday, Mum! (10-30-2007)
Avoid becoming glum.’
Lovingly dedicated to my dear mother
Mrs.Stella Antoniswami, CBE
By son Celestine, wife Mercy and
Grand-daughters Cathy ad Diana
