By a trick of the turning world two people, a day apart,
Are celebrating a birthday, though it wasn't like that at the start!
Here, in Oz, it's the 26th, in America the day before,
So now they share a birthday, which they didn't in days of yore!
One is my husband, Malcolm (he isn't awake just yet)
The other my old friend Margaret (seen here at the time we met!)
So Happy Birthday to them both. I'm proud to be the link!
Let's make a toast in cyberspace and hear the glasses clink!
