HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
Happy birthday to you,
every newborn day! Wait for a butterfly! It has something to say. I know your
minutes will be in their haste. Happy birthday to you, every golden ray! Will a
locked door let you in to stay? You know which key may be made of clay. What is
this silver key forged in my brain? Hello, emerald bud! Happy birthday! Wait
for a butterfly born to breathe during one day! See you soon, tender snowflake!
You will let a snowdrop take your white face. There is something which lays
nothingness on a puzzled glance. What makes these waves dance on their sapphire
lake? The air wings draw their own way. Hello, air wings! You were born to
play! Hello, my silver key! Have you shone like a golden ray? Happy birthday to
you, every newborn day! Do wait for me! I have something to say. The Silver Key -- Adam Cooley
