For Her One and Twenty

When I was one-and-twenty
I heard a wise man say,
“Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free”.
But I was one-and-twenty
No use to talk to me.
 
When I was one-and-twenty
I heard him say again
The heart out of the bosom
Was never given in vain;
“Tis paid with sighs a plenty
And sold for endless rue”.
And I am two-and-twenty
And oh, “tis true”, tis true.
 

A. E. Housman

Happy birthday, lil’ sister! May your life be as wonderful as you imagine to be.
