British Columbia, Canada
I could hardly wait this morning
To wish you a wonderfully happy day,
But then I started to wonder
What on earth was I going to say?
I decided to tell the world out there
Just how smart and sweet you are.
Not only a wonderful poet and writer,
But quite often your home town "crier." *
You write the songs that people sing, *
Rhyme words to make us laugh or cry,
With such a skill, and precision my dear,
AND you do poems in a wink of an eye!
What people should also know of you,
You have a heart of an angel and more,
A mentor, a patriarch, a friend to so many,
So here's to many more birthdays in store.
* Liz has been called upon to recite poetry for Memorial Day, and other occasions in her home town.
She has also had her songs recorded in Europe.
Quite an accomplished resident poet.
