Buon Compleanno, Amore

Autumn on Plum Island

Orange, saffron and mahagony leaves
tumble on the sand,
I stop and stoop to take one, red
and hold it in my hand.

I smile at autumn on the beach,
the beauty of the waves,
and my great luck to be with you
for all these wonderous days.

If it's autumn at the shore
it must be getting time,
to celebrate the birth of one,
so handsome, smart, sublime.

Happy Birthday my beloved,
I hope today is sweet,
one more year of love and joy
is really no small feat!

Ti amo caro!
