For Claire

On Her 80th Birthday

Your beauty beams with patent rage

Undiminished and unharmed with age

Like the primrose of the spring

You are the jewel that sunshine brings


Your kindness is without compare

Unprejudiced and unimpaired

Like the music of a hymn

You are the song that angels sing


Your joy inspires the world to smile

And makes the trials of day worthwhile

Like the rain upon the leaves

You are the water all life needs


Your compassion is unlimited

The purest and most noble gift

Like heroes in the books I read

You are the person I want to be
