Welcome to Four Lines! I have a goal I would like to write at least four lines of poetry or a haiku every day for the rest of my life. I'm excited about this challenge! Also, along with my daily poem, I will be reading at least four lines of another author's poetry. I'll try to include that here also. So I'm thinking - how difficult can it be to read and then write one poem a day? We will see! - Claudia

                    Sonnet Ten

           Happy birthday to you!
    The world is more beautifully blue
        with quiet dignity observing
       a gentle strength unwavering
                 because of you.
           Happy birthday to you!
    The world is more beautifully green
         with consciousness unseen
       a desire to learn, to care more
                 because of you.
           Happy birthday to you!
   The world is more beautifully brown
with a man loving and loved by one woman
                 because of you.


This poem is dedicated to my amazing Uncle Zoli,
- Happy Birthday! - and also, to his wife, partner and love,
my wonderful Aunt Anda.
