Paul’s Birthday 8/23

My brother Paul's birthday is still a month away, but as I haven't uploaded anything to this site in a while, I wanted to make sure I got something timely up at least. Here's a poem my father wrote for Paul when he was still a kid [year unknown as of this writing].

Paul’s Birthday 8/23

It seems like only yesterday
You were a tiny tot.
You finished all your cereal
And slept in a little cot.

And now you’ve grown a big boy
With a mop of curly hair.
You always seem so friendly
And never have a care.

Today we celebrate with you;
We’re going to have a ball.
It’s the twenty-third of August—
Happy Birthday, Paul!
