Poem Commentary

Happy Birthday !

On July 24th, 2010

Hats off to my brother
Who finally turns sixty today
Let us get the low-down
On what he has to say

Yup, that is right, he says
I am officially over the hill
Just how do you cure that?
Do you have to take a pill?

When he was a little boy
He liked to play Peter Pan
As he grew he played sailor
Joining the navy as a young man

Now that h e is  older
And he has tried to do  his   best
Neptune says he has earned the right
To have  his first treasure chest.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
