There is a man named Balladeer
Who has his birthday now and here
And from this land far over sea
You get big knuffels from Dutchie me



For now he's lost in Doldrum city
Isn't that an awfull pity
Deprived we are from poems in wit
I miss him terribly I must admit



But sometimes it's just common sense
When taking part gets too immense
To take a break can be a relieve
And that's what he's doing I believe



Sweet Deer, come here, you'll get a kiss
Your day of Birth I'll never miss
Still laughing at memories of last September
Ohhh... those days in Florida, I do remember

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
BALLADEER


Titia


Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

What a great tribute Titia! He's one in a million, our Balladeer!

Happy Birthday Michael!  

A thousand times, I thank you 'Deer,
For being who you are;
A man whose special gift is shared,
With all, both near and far.

You've touched our hearts with ballads true,
Through stories that you weave;
A master in the truest sense,
Of truth, and make-believe.

Your vast imagination seems
To shine so many ways …
A poignant piece, or light and fun,
I always am amazed.

You captivate your audience,
With stories that inspire,
Through narratives and anecdotes,
You set our minds afire.

You pen our hearts, you pen our lives,
Bring characters to life,
And through your words, we feel their warmth,
It's always sheer delight.

I've grown myself, in reading you,
And truly I feel blessed,
For all you are … for all you do …
Sweet poet … you're the best.

So thank you 'Deer, for being "you",
For all that you have penned,
Allowing me to know you as …
A writer … poet … friend …


  
Best wishes and big happy birthday hugs,
/Kit

Remembering a day back when
I found you in the Pit.
I saw your poetry and then
We shared some verse and wit.

Four years it seems have passed us by.
Those birthdays come and go.
We've bantered daily laughs and sighs
We've traveled to and fro.

Great memories - good times for all
But one stands as the best
When we got "pringled" I recall
As we went to Key West.

I find it interesting, Deer
You share this day, I see..
Your birthday's happening I fear
'Long with "Bad Poetry"!!...



Happy "Bad Poetry Day" Birthday, Mike
...Love ya...

The Birthday Kiss for Balladeer
A Duet
By
Sharon and Sharon
(aka Mysteria and deVine)


He sauntered up to the kissing booth
confused and a little perplexed
not one, but two Sharon’s stood there,
his birthday wish had not been hexed!

Both ladies stood there patiently
lips pursed while waiting for a kiss
'deer's poor heart beat so fast
he knew he had found his bliss

His birthday wish had come true
Double the fun was on his plate,
Not one, but two gorgeous blondes,
stood there ready to accommodate.

He puffed out his chest like a man,
Walked up to those girls quite bold,
Smiled a grin from ear to ear,
One of his best so I was told.

“Ladies” he said with Southern drawl
“my dreams have now come true
tis long been a wish of mine
to be kissed by both of you”

The Sharons giggled shyly then
Both eyeing the ‘deer with trepidation
He seemed quite eager to begin
Some birthday osculation

The ladies looked at each other
Twas this they’d planned for weeks
As ‘deer leaned in, lips in ready
They kissed him on his cheeks

Happy Birthday Balladeer!

Best Wishes on Your Birthday Balladeer!
There are no more things
                 to wish for you
That haven't been wished before..
So the only thing that's
                 left for me
Is to wish them one time more!!
Have a Magical Happy Birthday!

LOL everyone,

Your muses are early risers I see
Such lovely words to praise our Bal
He will be thrilled by joy I know
Because you all wished him so well

Maree is singing you a song
Of Happy Birthdayyyyy Balladeeeeer
I wonder if she's in the shower
It woudn't be a surprise to me

And Kit, that lovely Poet sweet
Wrote that you've touched our heart
So true her words describe your friendship
A sincere and lovable award

Then Sunshine came out to write in sky
'A happy Birthday sweet Deer'
Her words shine through blue pages
All in praise for your I fear

Janet Marie, this practical girl
Brought you some spam on underwear
I'm laughing my head of imagining you
Please give us a pic that we can share

Our Nanniness from Falmouth Cape Cod
Told us you picked the wrong day
But...bad poetry and you Balladeer
Don't go along very well I'd say

The Sharon sisters put up an act
And I wished I was there to see
The loudest laugh when they kissed you
Came probably from me

Enchantress writing lovely words
Wishing you a magical day
She said there were no more things to wish
But she ain't right I'd say

Denise sweet lady in Philly
The town where 'The Raven' is living
She is a wonderful dear lady
With a heart quite full of giving

And Honeybee wants a photo too
Of you in your glowing Spam underwear
You see dear Bal, your friends are gathering
Because we are the friends that care

And so you've come here to me again
Once more I will tell you sweet Mack
If you keep those birthdays coming man
I promise each year I too come back

Titia



Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Michael has the women swooning in verse,
My Birthday Wish will be more terse.
You know that I think you're the man,
And I'll do anything for you if I can.

But get off you toosh and write a verse,
For reading here without you is a curse!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I know this will seem drab and dull after all the wonderful verses... and even SPAM underwear. LOL Heck, I didn't even bake cookies. *G* Perhaps I could just yell loudly enough to wake up your muse? *G*

I do wish you a great birthday, Deer One... hope you enjoy every minute... and hope it's just the start of your best year yet. *S*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BALLADEER!

Happy Birthday Michael

There is no finer gentleman
I have ever met anywhere
from the tips of his size 12 toes
to the silver sparkle in his hair.

He is a little silly
well maybe that is true,
but as a friend our Balladeer
is true, red, white, and blue.

My wish for him is simple
may each day of his life count
mix it up with golf and humor
in just the right amount.

Never let his pen run dry
his ballads are the best
may he get his just revenge
on Mike and Toe before he's put to rest.

Give me a break - it's bad poetry day!

Dear Balladeer, since my muse has taken a vacation no verse from this Dutchie. Just a simple, but sincere "Happy Birthday Mike". However, it comes from the heart and that's what counts, right?

I saw this post today and thought
Now Titia's getting bolder
She's posting lies about a friend
For Deer can't be getting older

You see the picture on my screen here
Hasn't changed one bit
And his lovely poetry
Still contains his wit

His works display his simple grace
Yet still portray his youth
So Titia I beg of you,
It's time to tell the truth

You see, a bard like Balladeer
Has entered through the portal
That's frozen verse to still up time
That makes our friend immortal

And so I'll raise a hearty glass
And toast him with this letter
But Balladeer's not growing older
He's only growing better!!!
Happy Birthday Michael....sending a big hug and kiss your way for all you do for us here on Passions...love you dear friend

~ Ruth

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Titia, thank you for such a beautiful gesture!!

I wanted to answer each of you individually - DID answer each of you individually - spent 45 minutes answering each of you....but since I used one smiley too many the program deleted the entire reply!! GRRRRRR!!!

So please know that I thank everyone of you for the poetry, the glow-in-the-dark Spam undies, and the magnificent dig from Serenity. I appreciate all of you and am blessed to have your friendship....and, Dutchie, you're the greatest!!!!
