Birthday Girl

Courtesy of Thurles Author & Poet Tom Ryan ©

I’ll measure not your worth in days,
Nor by a calendar your beauty note.
But only the memories ever and always
Of a loveliness you wrote
On stars and earth.
Your years of life
Gracing the world.
Beautiful the tale you told
Of silver childhood, youth of gold,
And, lit by the light of the future,
Are still yet bound
For brave and beautiful horizons all around.


Tom Ryan “Iona”, Rahealty, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
