Happy 60th Birthday Mum

In Bournemouth town there lives a mother

Superior to any other. Sixty years of age is she,

Though looking more like twenty-three,

The secret to her youthful glow

Is golf and gym and veg, you know.

Yes, Beryl has that mystic art

Of always looking very smart.

Her hair: perfection on a head

As soon as she gets out of bed;

The home immaculately neat

(As long as Colin wipes his feet.)

Now, anyone who crosses Beryl

Is truly in a state of peril,

For Mrs N has such a glare

You really wish you were not there!

In fact, you’d very likely say

That lady’s like a Milky Way:

A firm and solid outer part

With soft marshmallow at the heart.

She’s the lynchpin, axis, core,

The lighthouse guiding you to shore,

The rock that’s there whatever weather,

And keeps the family together.

So Happy Birthday Mrs N

Beloved Mother, Wife and Friend.
