Happy Birthday

Poem By Susan Casey

I would give you rainbows
crystal colours, shining white.
A golden crown would dress your hair,
so regal fair you would be.
What you will, my own fairy queen,
tiny spider webs filled with dew like tears.
If I give you everything,
will that then bring you near to me.
Still on this very special day,
you hurry far away.
Trailing blossoms as you go
a smile of joy I have often known.
I would give you rubies dear,
my own red blood...here
Just to have you near.
My wish for your birthday please is
that you stay one more day
and we can play a game,
just you and I!
Tomorrow is to be your special day.
You can choose to be here
or far away.
Heaven day or Earth birthday,
so you choose.
For you I light a gentle flame,
then I must walk my way
as you walk too.

My Secret Joy

If it were not for you
It seems that every day would be
A life unfulfilled.
Winter then forever and no smile of spring.


I Was Born!
At least I thought I was,
Now I see they threw me into this world.
Helpless as God is,

Canute And The Waves

As winds of change rage, storms around this weathered place
Man must answer God for all we do and all I am.
I remember a King who said to the waves “Go Back! ”
“I command thee! I am King; you must do just as I ask! ”

Beloved Memory

Sweet One
Your voice is a mystery to me!
A delicious enchantment of rapture and torment
It taunts me with husky, sentiment.

Retiring But Not Retired

While we all sat around thinking of the right words to say
Someone, not me, took the lot and threw them up all over the agenda.
The Boss freaked out and glared across the table,
While everyone tried to look busy and not meet his eyes.


I believe I can fly!
Stretch out my arms and soar above this world
Of wrecking balls and nuclear devastation.
It’s not a threat.
