Happy Birthday, Jane

Today is the 90th birthday of my only sibling, Jane Walker. I wish her, on behalf of the whole family, a Very Happy Birthday and many more to come. Jane hates being promoted in public so instead I’ve written a little ditty for her. Sing it to the tune of Land of Hope & Glory:

‘Have a Happy Birthday’
is what we acclaim
through a British cold day
and excessive rain.
Sing a chirpy song now,
Summer’s coming soon
and there is no reason
for the doom and gloom.
Join with lots of laughter.
We’ll say it again.
Shout it from the rafter,
Happy Birthday, Jane
Yes please, from the rafter
