  1. Your Thirty
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    Today is the day we sing Happy Birthday,
    As today thirty years ago you were born.
    Hard to believe you're now thirty,
    Your youth is now gone, you should mourn.

    We all knew you were getting older,
    Just didn't realize how old you’ve become.
    We will try not to mock or tease you,
    As we will always think great of our chum.

    Thirty is just another number,
    Although it's the first step, to middle age.
    Now comes wrinkles, grey hair, baldness,
    You really should be hiding backstage.

    Okay, we've been kind of unhelpful,
    In making this birthday much fun.
    We'll roll out the carpet to introduce you,
    As on your birthday, you are truly number one.

  3. The Clock Is Ticking Fast
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Your twenties are behind you,
    The clock is ticking fast.
    Can't believe you're thirty,
    That went by so quick, the past!

    You may feel the same inside -
    But with few new wrinkles on your face.
    No need to grab the tissues -
    As for sure age has its place!

    But life still holds so many surprises,
    And years of joy to come.
    So  embrace this milestone
    And make thirty a lot of fun!

  4. Entering your thirties is a swift transition from the twenties, marked by the ticking clock and a sense of time flying. Though you may feel unchanged inside, a few wrinkles may hint at the passage of time. Rather than dwelling on this, embrace the new decade, recognizing that age has its own significance. Approach this milestone with enthusiasm and make your thirties a time of fun and discovery.

  5. Age
    Poet: Edward Tuck

    Age is a quality of mind:
    If your dreams you've left behind,
    If hope is cold,
    If you no longer look ahead,
    If your ambition's fires are dead
    Then you are old.

    But if from life you take the best,
    And if in life you keep the zest,
    If love you hold,
    No matter how the years go by,
    No matter how the birthdays fly,
    You are not old.

    Savor the moment don't look back
    Set your goals and stay on track.

  11. The Years Fly By
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2021

    It seems like yesterday when
    The age you were at was only ten.
    Then before we could turn around
    The age of twenty was then found.
    Now here today, we can't believe
    Thirty years you have achieved.
    Enjoy these years as we can tell you for sure
    The next thirty will fly by faster than before.

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Thirty is not a ripe old age
    Life just begins at this stage!

    And, at times, life can be crazy.
    But, look at life with a positive attitude
    You can reach any altitude.
    So, celebrate this time, and look forward
    With expectation, not behind!
