The Candelabra: For Mummy Precious Richards on her Birthday

                   I

Euphonious today is the tone 
And though tomorrow is shrouded , unknown,
I trust it holds a blissful opaline pod
And to this repose a prayer to our Lord and God.

                   II

Some court are songless and dark
Some have lost their Eden park
But I saw a songbird over your window sill
And you sat cushy on Croesus seal
Away, away from fears,away from tears.

                  III
Your place is among the stars
Where the twelve streams of Elysus 
Flow; God has made you 
 A salt to this nation,
The candelabra of the world!

Choice birthday greetings to you.
