← Birthday Poems

For Violet, on Your Eighth Birthday

by Morgan S. Grether

Seven turns to eight

And you demonstrate

Your deep infatuation

With creating lovely art.

A true appreciation

From your clever heart.

Throwing ceramics, writing poems,

Painting art for our walls at home.

You make every place your studio.

From tabletop or bunk bed

The world’s your portfolio

In your artist eyes, your artist head.

Eight turns around the sun

And you’ve only just begun.

Eight spins, my tiny jester,

Full of jokes, full of laughter.
