It's my birthday today.  Ta-da!
The air's gotten cool.  There's
A great deal of wind.  My daughter,
Her daughter, her son and her husband
Are here for a few days, since they've
Sold their house.  My son and his
Daughter and wife are here, too.
They're not planning on leaving,
So far as I know, and there's also
A dog, but, by just after eight, none
Of them still will be here, except for
The dog, which means that I'll be by
Myself for some hours, cleaning
And cursing as I read the news.  It's
Doubtful, then, that anything will seem
Special, on this day, my birthday.  Ta-da!
