It was reborn that day,
To frolic in the bogs,
Taking flight after stealing a hog...

9 AM, August 3rd, 1954…(Happy Birthday to ME!)


My dad told me it was his last good night sleeping,

After that was two and three and five o’clock feedings,

Changing diapers, running to the store for more,

Cleaning bed sheets, stories to the kid they were reading…


Gave birth did my mom, long and lanky was I,

Gonna be a tall one said the doctor & with blue eyes,

Even the little hair said I was to be blond,

Came out did I in total human disguise…


No one knew, nor even to this day,

My wings and horns hidden, I do not display,

Oh yes but at night, I sometimes take flight,

No fears must you have, I will them allay,

For I am just a remnant of a past time,

The progeny of a legend of old,

Yes I admit it, the Pine Barrens my home,

Little did mom and dad realize,

They gave birth to that which no one can behold…

I love you, ED. Happy Birthday. Ed Kostro said you were trying to hide it, but how could a Leo possibly do that? LOL. And stop kidding around about being all sorts of unholy creatures. I can feel your sweet spirit all the way up here in northern Jersey. ~~Nordette
