Here’s a short poem for my friend Joy who celebrated her birthday recently. She’s one of the most energetic people I know.


The sun descends and night-time falls,

As guests converge on Crooked Walls.

A wonderous beauty,

Full of mirth,

Celebrates her day of birth.

Hey nonny no,

And mirth a plenty,

She looks no more

Than one and twenty.
