ON HER BIRTHDAY

Post by rksingh » Thu Jun 19, 2008 11:03 am

For Winny

I want the best of life for you
but you too must understand
what I can't do

you must be patient and do
what you can--
I can't create the fruits

I may create space
for you to stand but I can't
become the legs

you must run the race
on your own and be
what you dream

the redness of mars
and the whiteness of moon
merge in you

you have worlds to conquer
and miles to go, my dear

you must rear the goose
and have the gold each day

This is really nice! 8-)

But the last two lines seem vague to me... I know that it's from the Jack and Beanstalk story (the goose that can lay a golden egg) but what do you mean by that in your poem? :oops: :oops:
