Birthday Blessings

By Howard Simon

The sun got out of bed
Swam across the ocean
Just to shine on you today

The wind climbed mountains
Endured dusty deserts
Just to blow on you today

The birds organized their orchestra
Traveled to nearby trees
Just to serenade you today

The rain descended high heavens
Bowed at your feet
Just to refresh you today

I join all of nature in wishing you
A blessed birthday today
