In the meantime, you know that Uncle Lynn and Veggie are hosting another Giveaway this week, right? It features Pop'rs Prizes AND a $100 Tar-Jay Gift Card! For more info on that, Click Here. And don't forget to comment on all of my posts this week, for more entries!

Now, Veggie Mom, being the ever-vigilant SIL, wants to commemorate Aunt Julie's Birthday today, with a little ditty she penned just for the Pop'rs Queen. Sorry I didn't bake a cake, Julie Eliz...but this Faux-Veggie Cake's good enough, isn't it?

Ode to Aunt Julie,
On the Occasion
of Her Big Day!

There once was an Auntie named Jules
who often chose to break the rules;
She quilted and baked
and gardened and raked,
as if trained at the finest of schools.

She had a SIL name of Vee
who wrote verse with profoundest of glee;
Vee wrote and she wrote
'til she had a whole boat-
load of limericks, most worthy, for free!

Vee picked up her good friend, named Jammin'
the times they had always were slammin'.
Although Jules had not met
Jay, Vee thought she could get
these two together, no scammin'!

So Vee got a birthday-type cake
from Google, don't make a mistake;
The cake featured carrots, beans, peas,
and strawberries, you see;
fruits and veggies won't cause bellyache.

You probably must realize by now
Jules' birthday is here, oh and how!
So the Vee and the Jay
will come over to play

with Aunt Julie, please take you a bow!
Jules requested a poem for today
like the one that Seuss got, but say, hey!
I just don't have all the brain
power, it is such a drain
to create silly verses all day.

So we are here partly to say
that Aunt Julie's the Girl of the Day.
She doesn't have Seuss
but could this be a deuce
of a present to celebrate her birthday?

Please check out Wordful Wednesday, over at Seven Clown Circus. Also, this Birthday Poem was penned not just for Aunt Julie, but for the Random Complexity Writing Challenge: 219 Words!

Happy Birthday!
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Tis like a morn in spring.
With a lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world is bright and gay
When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away.
