Little Red Barn Cake

(An ode to Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown)

By the little red barn

On the yummy green cake

Little girls gathered with

Birthday memories to make.

There was a big group of friends

And a little taste of heaven

With candles on the cake.

Count them. There are seven.

They all played together by the little red barn cake.

And they climbed in the saddle, horseback rides to take.

When the candles were lit at the end of the meal,

The party guests sang,

The Birthday Girl squealed.

Hope breathed in the smell of sweet warm hay

And blew out her candles without delay.

The Daddy said prayers that Hope would be blessed

And asked God to guide her as He knows best.

The little girls smiled and nibbled their cake,

So happy to join Hope to celebrate.

And there they were

All day long

Playing happily

By the little red barn cake.

Only the wishes were left to make,

The party favors for guests to take.

While the sun shined high

In the bright autumn sky.

Happy Birthday, Hope!
