1371-1373. Many happy returns of the day*

Frère Larry's turned three score and ten!
Somehow, he's remained really thin
It must be his diet
(Though I'll never try it)
I'm sure it does not include gin.

While I sit at home with my rhyming
He'll probably go out rock climbing
But, hey!  It's your day,
Spend it any old way
With activities you find subliming.

Of stanzas, you ought have another
So here goes, you wonderful brother --
When it comes to men
I could have as my kin
I can't think of any I'd ruther.

* First learned c. 1950 on the radio show, "Big John and Sparkie."
