Wishes for a birthday

May you stand at your ease,
a creature to behold;
the sun on your face,
lit by a smile from within;
the land spread out before you,
its beauty matching your own.

May a trove of good wishes
fall upon your shoulders
and lighten your spirits.
May the day reward your good deeds,
the evening bring warm hopes for the future,
and the night a sound rest.

About Brian Bixby

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.

    That’s a beautiful ‘wish’. Is it the year round again? Wow, time flies (which is a smaller creature than the house fly) 🙂
