DPF / Collins

For your birthday and for the sweet sixteen we celebrate today, from The Rain in Portugal.
from December 1st / by Billy Collins
I imagine they had you wrapped up tight,

 and there was your tiny pink face 

sticking out of the bunting,

and all those McIsaacs getting used to saying your name.
