‘Happy Birthday’ My Dear Sister, Clemencia!


The strong-girl of our home!
She did the hardest chores;
And helped mother at work,
And locked the house’s doors.

She was a simple dame;
But received all the blame;
She yearned for love and name;
Life played a cruel game!

She loved to talk her heart,
And learned on own some art;
Unlucky on her part,
She remains right from start.

She is an Aquarian;
Devoted Marian;
She leads a spinster’s life,
Alone, amidst much strife.

May God bless my sister,
On her birthday today!
And grant her will-power
To walk in Heaven’s way.

Dedicated to my dear elder sister,
Miss. Noeline Mary Clemencia, CBE.
