Birthday Lines For K.B.

Life is a Poem, short or long, 
A dismal Dirge, or jovial Song, 
A Psalm of faith, or Lay of Pride, 
One stanza by each year supplied. 

And thy sweet Hymn of love and truth, 
A carol of unfading youth, 
Which God hath given thee to rehearse, 
Enlightening others' chequered way, 
Is strengthened by a further verse 
Upon the gracious April day.
