Birthday Gift Poem #4 ©Dawn Minott | a Gwawdodyn Byr

Birthday is a time for good wishes

A midas-like touch for successes

Love like assuring hug caresses

Knee slapping laughter tear induces

Impecable good health and high spirts

Sprinkled throughout the year, showers of wealth

Afterword: This piece was inspired by birthday wishes sent from a friend. I used the gwawdodyn byr poetic form — it’s a sestet (or six-line stanza) form with 9 syllables in the first 4 lines; 10 syllables in the final 2 lines; lines 1-4 and 6 end rhyme; the end of line 5 rhymes with a syllable in line 6.
