From the Stars I Did Come Down...


From the stars
I did come down
bearing my light
to light a crown
of shimmering stars
to shine on earth;
today's the day I came to birth.

As an adult, it's not considered diplomatic to announce your birthday. For children, birthdays are exciting, and exuberant announcements are not frowned upon... But I love birthdays. Why should we stop celebrating our yearly milestones?

So, happy birthday to me...
