TREASURES hid in clay
We see them everyday
Like water, air and light we need
We need them everyday

WHAT ever can we say
These treasures on life's way
We rarely even see their worth
But we see them anyway

BEAUTIFUL may you stay
A precious gem I pray
And that your years be glorious (and blessed, and fulfilling, and all you desire)
Also, Happy Birthday!!

PEOPLE! Celebrate, yay!
Let children come out to play
It's Golden Treasureversary
A star was born today
