"I'm thankful..."

"I'm thankful for dependable perennials."

Happy Birthday, Friend!
Wishing you the blessings of life's constants: family, friends, faith, hope, 
and love.

Though annuals adorn earth's face,
their charm cannot compare to grace
of trusty flowers that appear--
no matter what--year after year.

In health, in sickness, sorrow, joy
they're hope to every girl and boy,
they grow like faith with passing hours,
like love they bloom -- those trusty flowers.

Let life be filled with things that last,
that keep us anchored, hold us fast.
Let once again a hymn be sung 
to good old things -- forever young.

Live for the Love of it,
Sasha A. Palmer (aka Happy)


  1. Hugs and yes, sloppy old tears. This poem is beautiful and precious (you used words that resound in my soul)!

    Thank-you Sasha!

    Off to garden with my daughter today and hopefully begin a nurturing for love of 'perennials'.

    1. Have a wonderful day, Janet!
      Much love from "Happy."
