Ayn Rand’s Birthday

Your birthday, o’er all life-loved days

That we do praise most high,

Though lesser than those greater days

When you stood straight man’s “I”,

With cheering thoughts we celebrate,

With calm, proud words we sing,

The starting you who could not wait

To grasp your first known thing.

That honesty which you began,

And never once let go,

That trademark of heroic man

Which all your writings show,

We honor now, we honor you,

Who self, nor man, let fall,

But, clearing ways to living true

Heroic men did call.

We heard, still hear, love’s selfish thee,

Thou earthly woman high;

Thine whole grand life, in memory,

From us shall mot pass by!

Your birthday, o’er all life-loved days,

Makes ageless youth our prize,

As fountainheads of Atlas praise

Seek anthems of your eyes!

One

Dear, you are more to me than anything on earth;

Yes, dear, yea, the meaning and the light of all worth,

All happiness,

And even more than this,

More than words are,

For they’re too weak to know or understand

That I stand taller because of you,

I am stronger, too.

Yes!

And my whole body sings,

Leaps and sings within my mind

Because this more of you I find,

My dear and sacred one, one, one, one, one.

Glad The Verses

Glad the verses came to me,

My children, sweet and light!

Claimed my book of poetry,

Sang into it right.

One page more lay empty then,

When winged eyelashes flew,

And I gazed up to see again

My inspiration—-you.

If

If every day I sent a poem to your heart, its lovely home,

There to stay and never roam,

And if my lips were wet with dew

Just because of loving you,

I think I might seal closed mine eyes

So they weren’t burnt by Paradise

In looking on your face so fair,

And my ears, too, would quiv’ring be

From hearing your delivery—

So charged with your true inner light

That they’d be winged and fly all night!

And yet, your hand on me when close embraced

Is more than every dream l’ve chased.

With The Great…

With the great morning

Comes the great you,

Sunshine of my day.

There is mo song more sweet,

No flower more sure,

No one thing that is more

Than the you I adore—

The one true sun I stand before

With happy hands and happy feet.

My happy hands meet happy hands,

My toes touch happy toes.

Speedy Luffy Duff

Soup, eggs, coffee,

Running all around;

Here and there goes Luffy,

Doesn’t make a sound!

She is speedy, she is fast,

Does everything just right.

Try to see her

If you can—

You must have fast sight!

Her hands are quick,

Her feet fast, too!

Her body quickly follows.

She’s not a ghost,

But makes the most

‘Tween everybody’s swallows!

Breakfast done—

To work, let’s go!

Give Luffy loving wishes.

While we think

Into the sink

So fast she throws the dishes!

Luffy Duffy

We love so—

There’s nothing that gets past her.

She keeps us jumping,

On the go—

Tai Jei Jei—

No one’s faster!

Victory (Aug. 12, 2017)

Oh, down the downy cliff I go,

Falling free for my love true,

And there she’s shouting, “You’re too slow!

I would fall more fast for you!”

Small tree slides by, large rocks fly by,

Down and down I faster go,

And smaller grows the shrinking sky,

While louder her soft voice does grow.

“Oh, can’t you fall more faster, dear?

Must I wait the whole long day?”

At last I hit; I’m in the clear.

But where’s my Love? She’s run away!

Then Ha ha ha! and Hee hee hee!

I hear behind a greenish hill,

And Love runs bumping into me

And we both fall like Jack and Jill.

We roll on grass, I kiss her twice;

She half frowns at me.

Done playing then, I kiss her thrice,

All for ageless victory!
