Eight Things 'Ate' for Debs

I'm sorry, Debs, to write this poem so late!
I needed time to think what to create!

I give you couplets now that number eight
with birthday thoughts I’ve mono-rhymed with “ate.”

I’ll tell you first that I appreciate
your poetry; I think that it is great!

With clever use of words you fascinate
and offer models all can emulate.

I also love the way that you relate
to people; different views you tolerate!

Respected by your peers, you gravitate
to truth and knowledge, and you educate.

You make an effort to facilitate
good dialogue, avoiding words of hate.

I’ll finish with some wishes. . . Hope you ate
an awesome cake and had a perfect date!

May Karma smile on you and satiate
your life with bliss so joy will be your fate!

And lastly, with this new year on your plate,
be glad, like me, you cannot procreate!

    And yes big thanks for my placement in your contest. So enjoyed doing my entry for your contest.

  1. Date: 9/22/2012 3:33:00 AM

    Sweet and adorable write this one for dear Debbie. am sure she will love all the praise you shower on her through this one. Good luck with the contest. As for your question about asthma and me, I am not a chronic patient. some seasonal allergies trigger mine once in a blue moon. One such attack recently inspired this poem!

  1. Date: 9/22/2012 3:27:00 AM

    Love this one, Andrea, and I know that Debbie will get a kick out of it! hugs, catie :)

  1. Date: 9/22/2012 12:22:00 AM

    Wow, I don't know how you found time to post the Constanza contest, reply to everyone, and fit this poem in too. You are a marvel Andrea. I had to give a mostly set reply to everyone because after taking care of our little 6 months old teething granddaughter for 7 hours today, I am too exhausted to do more. I couldn't be more pleased with all the wonderful entries and I know my form is challenging and I appreciate each and everyone who tried it. Thank you, Andrea for using it for your contest.

    What a great,poem to celebrate,Debbie's birthday--this much I can say.
