'Tis like the birthday of the world,
When earth was born in bloom;
The light is made of many dyes,
The air is all perfume:
There's crimson buds, and white and blue,
The very rainbow showers
Have turned to blossoms where they fell,
And sown the earth with flowers.
- Thomas Hood
Happy Birthday, world ! And to me and Judy Collins, TimMcGraw and Rita Coolidge, all born on the 1st of May !
