How to Write a Birthday Poem
My birthday is right around the corner and every year, without fail, I'm asked the same question...
What do you want for your birthday???
I usually answer by saying that a gift isn't necessary, but that never works. People love giving gifts and who am I to deny them their right to generosity? Of course, it's not always easy to come up with an answer on the spot. So, I created a birthday poem to show what types of gifts are on my wish list.
Writing a birthday poem is easy...
- Title your poem as the date of your birthday.
- Come up with a wide variety of gifts that you would enjoy receiving.
- Send out your birthday poem to family and friends prior your special day.
You could even host a poetry reading for your birthday celebration...the possibilities are endless ;)
I hope this idea helps make all your birthday wishes come true!!!
TattooKitty's Birthday Poem
Autumn born. Scorpio. Scorn me not…
Bring me orange roses in the eyes of a candy skull.
Send Pez (but not raspberry).
Scar me with ink, giving me vividly vibrant hues
Intense as sunshine off snow. Blind me.
Save your greeting cards and write poetry.
I shed no tears for Hallmark rhymes.
Fill the pot with King Crab and hand me a shot glass.
Weave cream cheese wishes in a won ton wrap.
Build me a library, burn a CD.
Sing songs about Christopher Robin and a bear
Hell-bent on emptying honey jars.
Stay golden, Honeybear.
Jet a text, vandalize*, carve a tree ~10/26 Koali
Tattoo my metaphors upon the world.
Buy a pole- I fish, you cut bait.
Extra points for moonlight.
Black velvet-lined boxes put stars in my eyes.
Show me the rainbow of gems that glitter.
Give me a word, a lovely jewel,
I’ll make it shine.
Toast with margarita-filled chalices -Salud!!
Dip strawberries in chocolate, scoop pralines and cream.
Choya shot? Banzai!! Did someone say cake?
Tell me calories don’t count today.
Hug me like you’ll never see me again.
Swear that I am [insert adjective here].
Promise me the years are not going by faster.
Pray that time pays with wisdom.
Today is my birthday.
Please don’t forget.
Note: Vandalism is for artists and poets. If you can’t spell or draw, don’t f**king do it!!!
