Sonnet to Joseph at Five Years Old
In the year Two Thousand and Ought' and Two,
An Olympic spirit blew its way through:
In Utah, some national flags were unfurled
For skiers and skaters from this large world.
And as we had visitors, many of them foreign,
That was exactly when you, Joseph, were born:
That was the time when you came to this earth;
That February, the month of your birth!
We are so happy that you are alive;
Let’s celebrate that you're now turning five!
Let’s eat sweet cake till it comes out our ears;
Let us rejoice now for Joseph’s five years!
Let us just say in a short summary:
Thank goodness, thank goodness, for Joseph Montgomery!
by his Grandpa, Pa Hacken, for his 5th Birthday.
