Some of my favorite things

I received for my b'day this year:

1) A poem:

By Ernestine Cobern Beyer,
written for her daughters, sent to me by
her daughter Barbara (Beyer Malley),
my new adopted sister! :D


In love's most secret alchemy, divine,

I bore you. You are mine—and yet not mine.

Ancestral patterns blending with the new

Designed the special pattern that is You.

So did the present and the past devise

Your fair young face, your tender, laughing eyes!

Amazed, I look upon your grace and mirth

As might at some sweet flower the marveling earth.

Barbara is currently working on another
book of her mother's poetry, which I've loved
since I was a child. Then...

2) a link:

From Thomas - coincidentally, to the very
same poem of Ernestine's that I read when I
was a kid, called The Laughing Willow.
Thomas, I got more hits off that one link
than I have all year! XD


3) Halo :

by Beyoncé.
It's not easy, but I'm working on it:)

& forgive my unintentional omission,
but I also got...

4) a visit from dear
Saint Nick:D

I'm happy I was able to help you out. :)

Thanks to you, Thomas, a lot more people have been introduced to the poetry of ECB by way of our favorite merry tree. Barbara wanted to express her appreciation as well, but I don't know if my comment box is cooperating as it should - so I'll pass along her great big "Thank you!" to you, as well! :D
