Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
Oh, She is Old by Raymond A. Foss
A Decade, double digits
and all of that
Today is her birthday
so give a cheer
for the divine Miss E
Big Sissy, and ErriKa

A girl with a knack
to push, to hug, to test
To Test, to Test
Surely you jest
to see the vein on our head
pulse and pop
a chance to see the limits
what she can do

A loving child
eager to please
and go with the flow
one who is surely in the know
so lend an ear
for we hold her
oh so dear
Miss Erica
has lived to see another year

June 16, 2006
Erica’s Birthday
