Birthdays

The Birthday Child

Everything's been different,
All the day long.
Lovely things have happened,
Nothing has gone wrong.
Nobody has scolded me,
Everyone has smiled.
Isn't it delicious
To be a birthday child?

Rose Fyleman


Today

Glory may
I like today
Today, today
I like today
No other day's
quite like today
Not tomorrow
or yesterday
I like today
In every way
Today, today
Today-
My birthday!

John Archambaulty


Happy Birthday!

Today's the day
We get to say
We're happy you were born-
Hooray!


The Wish

Each birthday wish
I've ever made
Really does come true
Each year I wish
I'll grow some more
And every year
I DO!
