Colin F. JonesCOLIN’S BIRTHDAY
Col, is it your birthday too?
Well, my deepest condolences, uh, er, congratulations to you.
We are indeed richer for knowing you.
You are a great poet, giving meaning to words and rhyme
Blessing with increased knowledge, conjecture, the sublime
With impressive works of worth to us inspiring
Betimes melancholy… betimes with meaning exhilarating
But always interesting, memories evoking, thought captivating.
So happy birthday…
And know that you are appreciated this day.
