In Honour of Birthday Celebrant

Updated: Apr 19

It rose from the bottomless sea

In a wondrous arc

That's a delight to see

It shimmers with light

As it foams incandescently

That wave reminds me

Of my friend Merrie Amory

Such depth of character

And helpfulness too

Wrapped in beauty

Amazingly true

I value her friendship

In the spirit of human dignity

Merit she gives only on worth

No matter your status

Or the role you play

She stands tall on her uttered words

In any discussion that may ensue

This side of life

Is what I love most

To find someone of integrity

Who shares honest thoughts

In all situations

And never falter

Though inopportune the moment

To help someone in distress

Her other side, you must know too

As her love of music is no secret

The way she dances on the floor

Will hold your attention

Riveted to her sinuous moves

That fun loving lady

I know so well

Is none other than my very dear friend

May she continue

To grow in grace

And make a difference

In her space

Happy Birthday

Merrie Amory Field
