Happy Birthday Dick!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DICK!

Happy Birthday, Richard!
Are you really seventy-five?
It feels as though it's just the start
Of what we call 'alive'!
But now we're both grandparents,
Sharing the tears and joys
Of a bunch of little children.
(What a lot of boys!)
(You're still my favourite cousin; don't tell Paul!)

Richard and me 'once upon a time' here:

What a warm ditty for your cousin. Age does mellow people, doesn't it?

What a lovely Bday greeting. And that little naughtiness (You're still my favourite cousin; don't tell Paul!)
