The linking of warm hopes, of burning truths
What a week it has been, what a year!
Your birth is the conjunction of futures and pasts
of heres and theres and nows and thens
a focal point where memories and intentions
meet in blazing waves of flaming ecstasy
But not only!
Your birth is the twining of smiles and cries
the winding of river paths and forest trails
an entanglement of meanings and feelings
and makings and doings that upside down our spirits turns
The birth of a new life, of a new hearth
The merging of letters and sounds and words in verse
What a life it will be!
What a life it is
