I thought and thought and thought about what pithy, powerful poetry I might post today for my Solar Return. But this, as it has in past years, suits me just fine. Now we are Six(ty).
(ps: If you’d like to help me celebrate my birthday in a beautiful, tangible way, please donate a little (or a lot) to my dear friends and colleagues at Cherry Hill Seminary or else to the SEVA Foundation).
Now We Are Six
by A. A. Milne
When I was one I’d just begun,
When I was two I was nearly new,
When I was three I was hardly me,
When I was four I was not much more,
When I was five I was barely alive,
But now I am six! As clever as clever!
And I think I’ll stay six now for ever and ever!
