  1. Time To Fess Up
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2012

    Today is your birthday,
    And there is something I must say,
    It's time to confess your age,
    As we all can see, you've gone grey.

    You can no longer continue to say,
    You're in your twenties, they have definitely peaked.
    It's time to fess up to the truth,
    You're Forty, let's hear the shriek!!

    Forty isn't so bad,
    Well, that's what I have heard.
    I'd like to say I understand,
    But unlike you, I'm still a young bird.

    One day it will be my turn,
    And I'm sure you’ll be right there!
    But I'll always have one thing on you,
    I'm younger and that I swear!

    Over the hill
    With lots of bills
    Forty comes quickly
    It can make you feel sickly.

    The years ticked by
    Time how it flys
    But the day has arrived
    And you'll survive.

    Happy Birthday to you
    Don't get the forty blues
    Be happy, be merry
    The next forty are the cherry!

  5. You're Not Done
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Forty is the new twenty - right?
    That is what forty year olds write.
    Middle age has no cause for fright,
    Unless you count the wrinkles in sight!

    Your youth may be an old stereotype,
    But fear not - 40 is just a bunch of hype!
    Let go and have some really good fun,
    Being forty, you're not yet done!

  9. Fabulous At 40
    Poet: Sam Fickinsen, ©2020

    Look at you, fabulous at 40
    Life is still pretty ordinary
    But tomorrow over the hill
    Some say you will

    But hey forty's not so bad
    In fact, you should be glad
    You can celebrate yesterdays
    Even if your memory changes the ways

    You can anticipate  tomorrow
    Even if from your dreams you borrow
    Don't let your age get to you
    Otherwise, you'll just be blue

    The Big Four O
    You may be a bit slow
    But don't despair
    We can get you a chair

    Keep on going
    And keep on growin'
    Look forward to the next 10 years
    When you will turn 50, my dear!

  11. Age Forty
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Age forty is here, it is in sight
    Quest for wisdom may come to flight.
    A new path unfolds before you
    No longer young but don't be blue!

    Life's joys are yet to unfurl
    Time ahead of you to twirl -
    Don't worry about the years that past
    Enjoy middle age and all that lasts!

  13. Not So Bad
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Turning 40 is not so bad
    You can look back and see all you had
    And then look forward and be glad
    For all the years coming and those you had.

    You are in the prime of your life
    You have the wisdom to handle strife
    The experience you have gained
    Allows you to now show restraint.

    So when the joking is all done
    Remember 41 has just begun.
    Live your years and be happy for
    The years to come, and what is in store.

  15. Turning 40
    Poet: Theodore Higgingsworth

    Turning 40 is not so bad,
    Be happy don't be sad.
    Just think in another 40 years
    You will be 80, oh my dear!

    So celebrate and forget the number
    Think of it as a small blunder.
    Yes, half of your life is gone
    But of you, we are still very fond.

    Turning 40 is just another day
    Even if you are turning gray.
    Laugh, be happy, really who cares
    Happy 40th we do declare!
