Birthday Poem for Gavin Henry, 9 Years Old
we hope you enjoyed the day
a week early, but it’s all just the same
there was food, and some basketball too
there’s one thing that’s still left to do
the cake and the candles are done
and happy birthday was by all of us sung
but there’s one thing that’s left to be given
a gift, that great birthday tradition!
we thought of this, and of that, and the other
and we dismissed them one after another
but an idea from nowhere just came
we’ll give him a ___, and enjoy a game!
