Happy Birthday Sonnet*


A house, a garden, and a lot of love

Perhaps the final dream of our dreams

Pure happiness in our silver gleams

Yes, all these blessings from beyond-above...


For all the world we'd never leave these islands

In our twilight years, so humble yet immense

For giving more than taking, our sense

Together in a lovely place called Highlands...


Yet will this miracle of life once end

Esteeming inner rainbows, slowly fading,

In our hearts the prime of promenading...


Grim Reaper, mildly come as our friend!

Hold heavenly a blissful serenading

Together hence, let us that Gate transcend...
