Popular Birthday Poems
Baby Song
by Thom Gunn

From the private ease of Mother's womb
I fall into the lighted room.

Why don't they simply put me back
Where it is warm amd wet and black?

But one thing follows on another.
Things were different inside Mother.

Padded and jolly I would ride

A Happy Birthday
by Ted Kooser

This evening, I sat by an open window
and read till the light was gone and the book
was no more than a part of the darkness.
I could easily have switched on a lamp,
but I wanted to ride this day down into night,
to sit alone and smooth the unreadable page
with the pale gray ghost of my hand.

The Lovely Days
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Orange sun is shining, pretty blooms follow green lane,
And smiles seem to linger, like azure skies after rain,
Midnights tend to sparkle, with a million vibrant stars,
Life's so much better, now you're in this world of ours!

Scarlet hummingbirds flit humming, pale moon is a pearl,
And sunsets glow brighter, multicolored heralding swirl.
The peach dawns are now hopeful, in loud birdsong bliss,
Hope your dreams come true, and you get your b-day wish!

Leo Queen
by Kuenzang Dorji

Celestial season!
Folks; it is, on the rise.
Euphoria! Can you feel?
Say not no, for even universe do!
To the cheery songs of koels,
And thick petrichor of summer,
Blades are dancing- vibrant and gleeful.
Can you hear? Soothing babble of brooks.
Zion; for real, now we live!
From the skyline; adorned in aurorae,

You Ruined My Birthday
by Randy Johnson

A man's birthday only comes around once a year.
You wanted revenge because I drank your last beer.
You decided to get even by ruining my birthday.
You got even by giving me the new Doctor Who on Blu-ray.

You know that I hate the new Doctor Who, I think it's a piece of crap.
Now you've started crying like a two year old because I gave you a slap.
I loathe the new Doctor Who TV Show and I let everybody know about it.
You bought me a piece of crap for my birthday and it's making me throw a fit.

625 days and counting
by Grace Frost

365 days we are celebrating you,
Life redefined in 2 pink lines,
625 days this love is brand new.

January to October time to grow,
Impatience is a family trait, 12/09/21,
365 days we are celebrating you.

10pm, 1am and 3am feeds,
Fatigued but morning comes again,

Don’t cut a cake! Awake! Your Birthday is Fake!
by airatmaninravi AiR

Do you cut your birthday cake?
Do you know your birthday is fake?
Don't continue to make the mistake
It's time for you to now awake!

Ask your mother when you were born
You were kicking weeks before and this went on and on
You were alive long back, she knows
And even science has pictures as the embryo grows

A Novel Idea
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was an avid, lifelong book lover, and I could read forever and a day,
Like the pleasing, scented lilacs, always and forever blooming in May.

Though my house was very disorganized, I would read where I could,
Because I was not the tidiest person, however life was still very good!

All those who really knew me, understood how much I loved reading,
As loving eyes turn westward each evening, to sun's motley receding.

I dwelt in a house, on 20 acres of land, that had several outbuildings.

Humor Me
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a solemn person by nature, so my demeanor was always dignified,
Like the somber moon of nighttide, that sees vaguest dreams magnified.

Oh, I enjoyed having a good time, only I showed it in different ways,
As when a blizzard pummels the mountains, and the bold severity stays.

People were constantly inquiring of me, where was my sense of humor?
As folks give dark clouds the look, for gaiety's gone and it's cooler.

When people told me their jokes, I could hardly do anything but stare,
