All English Sonnets
ON SAM”S BIRTHDAY
On this auspicious day what I can give,
To Sateyn, I have thought about it friend,
And in a quandary which does greatly peeve,
I, to my senses urgent message/summons send
To guide me in this matter effectively
And when they see me worried, in this fix
With knitted brows and thinking furtively
They tell me,” with your presence prayer mix
For years of useful fruitfulness and joys
Which he may have and live them to the hilt,
In happiness without a trace of guilt
And treat this life as children treat their toys.
So, I have come to give you this message
In person : and my gift is on this page.
