Birthday celebration (c) 2022 Sharon Greenaway.


A day to hold his best friend’s hand

crawling in the giant hamster wheel,

Never stopping until


Granny wants a picture.

Run away


They climb the winding stairs

Screaming they whiz down

Mulga Bill’s slide.

Mum, Dad and Bubs are busy too,

Cuddles for Grandparents,

Aunties, Cousins

Chitchat with friends

Setting out food and drinks…

Time to gather round The candles are alight

Happy Birthday Jamie! Sung with gusto.

With one big breath he blows

Trails of smoke, five in all, float away.
