There lives a man,
a gentle, kindly, loving man
from whose prolific pen flows the poetry
to warm the breasts of the people in his life,
embrace the gods who smile on him,
and delight his many friends in our cozy den

[his "old melodies"
comes to mind].

Such is he who grows another year younger,
a man we join in celebrating this special day.
Long may he sing to us in his perfect
poetic diction, happy similes and metaphors,
his alliterative music.

Happy Birthday to Jon Michael Willey.
