I may have written you a nonsense birthday rhyme. ::Hides::

A Birthday Missive of Unusual Irrelevance and Oddness

I do not know what happens here,
It could be anything, I fear,
It could be trees a-fallen down,
It could be snow thick on the ground,
It could be wolves ranged all around,
It could be bears, it could be bears!!

The whole thing's giving me a scare
My knees are quaking hard, I swear,
It could be moose loose on the path,
It could be a giant giraffe,
It could be mermaids in the bath,
It could be bears, it could be bears!!

Upon this birthday, bright and fair*
I'll send you smiles and hugs and care!
I'll wish you were not woe'd with flu,
I'll wish you were not feeling blue,
But still, at least, remember do,
It wasn't bears, it wasn't bears!!

(*And if the day is not bright and fair I still send the smiles and hugs and care :))

Happy Birthday, Sal! ::runs::

Heee! That is fan-tas-tic! I heart it very much! And the mermaids in the bath turned out to be fun, after all, once we set some ground rules! ;)

It wasn't bears!

It was actually an okay day, once I took my giant box of birthday cookies and shared them with my dance-friends.

And then I came home and there were lovely messages and a birthday poem! I will pin this up somewhere prominent so that I can see it when the day threatens to go bears on me.

Thank you! :D

Heh! I'm glaaaad you had birthday cookies and dance friends :)

I'm tickled that you like the nonsense verse! I've no idea where it came from, except as soon as I'd said the words, "It could be bears!!" a couple of times, I thought of you, and then it became what it is. Do you even have bears where you live? I sort of think you do, but maybe I'm thinking of the time I visited Canada and kept randomly spotting bears where no bears should be. Railway track, anyone?

Sigh. Aren't brains funny places to live, sometimes? I hope that Salierimas doesn't go bears on you, anymore, and that you will dance and draw and eat cookies and Sig will be home, and all will be well :)

There are indeed bears where I live, often on my lawn :)

There are cougars now, too, which is new. But cougars doesn't scan as well so let's stick to bears.
