Popular Birthday Poems and Rhymes:

  1. Over The Hill
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    They say you are over the hill
    That you have been thru the mill
    The age you are is a number that's high
    But don't you sit down and cry.

    Life is too short as you well know
    There is nothing you can do to make it slow
    So live up this day and let the celebrations start
    We love you even if you are an old fart!

  3. A Poem, A Verse, A Rhyme, Or Two
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    A poem, a verse, a rhyme, or two
    I was going to write just for you
    But then I thought what do I want to say
    And just wrote Happy Birthday!

    No sense going on and on
    Reminding you the years have all gone
    I just keep coming back
    Today's your birthday, that's a fact.

    And as I thought of years gone by
    My pen just started to fly
    Wow! that is a lot of years
    Thinking of laughter and some tears.

    So now here look what I have done
    I have written too much but it was fun
    So I will end with one last thought
    Birthdays are free they can't be bought.

  5. Your Age
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    This is the day you were born
    Hope you don't feel forlorn
    Even though you are older now
    We think you should take a bow.

    The years have passed so fast
    Your younger years are in the past
    But don't fret about your age
    And don't wish the years back to teenage

    You may be slower and not as quick
    Your age may make you feel sick
    You can feel wrinkled and old
    But we think you are worth more than gold!

  7. How Many Years
    Poet: Julia C. R. Dorr

    My birthday! "How many years ago?
    Twenty or thirty?" Don't ask me!
    "Forty or fifty?" How can I tell?
    I do not remember my birth, you see!

    I know I am here, but when I came
    Let some one wiser than I am tell!
    Did this sweet flower you plucked for me
    Know when its bud began to swell?

    How old am I? You ought to know
    Without any telling of mine, my dear!
    For when I came to this happy earth
    Were you not waiting for me here?

    But - how old am I? You must tell.
    Just as old as I seem to you!
    Nor shall I a day older be
    While life remaineth and love is true!

  9. Look Ahead
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Oh, the day is here
    But don't you fear
    Another year has passed you by
    Please laugh, don't you cry.

    Be happy you made it another year
    And remember many think you're a dear
    Time continues to march on
    Not all is lost, not all is gone!

    Look at the experience you have gained
    Even though with your age you're in pain
    No sense in looking back
    Look ahead and stay on track!

  11. For The Birds
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Birthdays are sometimes hard to observe
    Many people think they are for the birds.
    Well, when I look at your age
    I can see why you are at that stage.

    Where did the years go
    Another birthday, oh no
    It only seemed like yesterday
    We celebrated your birthday.

    Oh who cares about age
    Don't let it discourage
    Be happy and just say
    It is just another day!

  13. Birthdays By The Year
    Poet: Unknown

    We count our birthdays by the years,
    And with each one we add,
    We count them short, if they've brought joy,
    And long, if they've been sad,
    But count them the way we will,
    For all hold joys and tears,
    May we continue to see the ticking of the years!

  15. Bright
    by Theodore Higgingsworth

    Why did we get sunglasses for you?

    It will be bright we will admit.

  17. Another Year
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Another year, another birthday
    Oh, how time does slip away.

    It is like one wrinkle and then there's two
    Every day now there is one that is new

    The candles on your cake seem so bright
    The whole house is full of light.

    Life seems to be passing by
    You sometimes say with a sigh

    But celebrate this day today
    And be happy in every way.

    Be thankful for this birthday
    The option is not one I want to say

    Enjoy your life no matter the wrinkles
    Spread sunshine with lots of sprinkles



  18. Time To Slow
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    If only I could get time to slow my age,
    No one would know the wrinkles on my face.
    I could go back to that youthful stage,
    Instead of making friends with age’s grace.

    All I need is to take a break,
    From all this aging that I hate.
    Cuz instead of getting softer with age,
    I'd just stay young until a ripe old age!

  20. Be Happy
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    These days you have more naps
    You remind us of our little cat
    You nod off when watching TV
    We know it is not 'cause you are lazy.

    The years are creeping along too fast
    Hard to imagine your youth in the past
    But who cares about age these days?
    Just be happy in every way.

    A Happy Birthday we wish for you
    You're getting older that is true
    But we love you more each day
    Even if you are going gray!

  22. Another Year
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Today marks another year
    Don't let age give you fear
    Let your smilin' face show
    That you still have that glow.

    The stages of life happen so fast
    Youth was yesterday but now has past
    Then mid-life comes along
    Life is good, you sing a song

    But the years continue to tick on by
    You won't say how old, you just lie
    How old are you we say
    Not a year older than yesterday?



  23. The Facts
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    I look at you and all the facts
    I can't believe your age and how you act.
    The number might suggest your old
    That you should be shriveled and full of mold.

    But, hey look at you
    You're young in all you do
    The number doesn't mean a thing
    As long as you can still sing.

    So may this little rhyme and verse
    Be one that you don't curse.
    Smile and be happy today
    Remember, it's your birthday!

  25. Celebrate
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    They say that birthdays stop with age
    Whoever said that should be put in a cage
    The years fly by and before we know
    The wrinkles come and they show.

    But some things are out of our control
    So forget the birthday and focus on your goal
    Life is too short to regret
    Or waste our time and sit and fret.

    Celebrate your birthday this day
    Be happy in every way
    Don't let age get to you
    Celebrate in every way!



  26. Repeat
    Poet: Unknown

    Gather a handful of roses,
    Some sunbeams, a rainbow or two,
    A couple of stars to wish on
    To bring you all your special dreams true,
    Tie them with ribbons of memories,
    The kind that are lovely and sweet,
    And have the kind of birthday
    You'd love to repeat and repeat!

  28. Another Birthday
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Another birthday has come around,
    No, you can't turn around.
    You count the years backward
    We know your age, we got the records.

    Maybe you should add 10 years to your age
    People would then say you look great at this stage.
    But really who cares how old you are
    Just tell them you're a classic, like a good old car.

    You're worth more now because of your experience
    Tell others not to make  judgments on your appearance.
    You are older but wiser, you're like a good wine
    You know what you want and that is just fine!



  29. Roses Are Red
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue
    Another year older
    That is you.

    At your age
    Make sure you stop
    And smell the roses
    Before you drop.

    And put on your glasses
    So you can see
    The blue in the violets
    Are as pretty as can be.

    All joking aside,
    I wish you a happy day
    And next year we will
    Forget it is your birthday!

  31. The Age
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Your birthday, the age you have reached
    Could make us all stop and screech
    But instead, we thought we would just sing
    Forget your age and the feeling
    That older and wiser you now appear
    But we still think of you as a dear!



  32. Not To Worry
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Birthdays come once a year
    But you may wish they would disappear.
    But not to worry about birthday blues
    You really are not old enough for them to hit you.

    I don't want to hear you complain or whine,
    Just be happy you get to go out and dine.
    A birthday is a celebration of you
    We won't mention your age unless you do!



  33. how old would you be if you didn't know old how you are?
