A Birthday Limerick and More for Wendy

There’s no good reason this wish is belated.
My eyes weren’t dilated nor was I sedated.
It wasn’t the flu.
Forgive me, Wendy Brown Chu
Now here’s the poem that was so long awaited.

Because I find you oh so dear
Filling our days with endless cheer
I wish you even more
With medieval troubadours
Accompanied by the pan flute of Zamfir.

A Birthday Villanelle for Wendy

It’s her birthday today!
It’s hard to keep still.
Let’s shout hurray!
My affection I’ll display
With my poetry skill.
It’s her birthday today!
Her sister came for a stay
Which is her biggest thrill.
Let’s shout hurray!
With two nephews who play
It is hard to keep still.
It’s her birthday today!
Serve her cake on a tray.
Her every wish we’ll fulfill.
Let’s shout hurray!
Should we have a buffet?
Hey, let’s fire up the grill.
It’s her birthday today!
Let’s shout hurray!
Happy Birthday, Wendy!

  3. Joyce!!!! Why are always making me cry? That is the sweetest thing ever!!! I love it so much. Thank you my dear friend!!

    I’ve had a wonderful day. I’m sad that it’s almost over but happy that I have another 3 1/2 days with my sister and her boys!! What a treat having them here. I haven’t smiled this much in a long time.

    The only thing that could have made my day any better was if I could have spent some time with you. I hope that one day you and I can sit down, drink some coffee, and have a long conversation in person!!! You have become one of my dearest and cheerished friends.

    Thank you so much for making this day more special than it already was!!

    Love you girl!
