We had a tea party until we ran out of lemon cookies. Then we tried to play golf, but there was too much snow. But when it’s your birthday you don’t need lemon cookies or golf to have fun. Thanks for letting me come play!

Let us have birthdays every day,
(I had the thought while I was shaving)
Because a birthday should be gay,
And full of grace and good behaving.
We can’t have cakes and candles bright,
And presents are beyond our giving,
But let us cherish with delight
The birthday way of lovely living.
