Birthday For All Anglicans

(On making the 8th of September the day for remembering all Anglican birthdays)

Although I have no doubt that Mary,
Jesus’ mother, was once born,
And though, however ordinary,
Her day of birth deserves no scorn,

It seems to me that many here
Have had birthdays which we do not
Remember in the Christian Year;
But they don’t grumble – not a jot!

And so I offer this suggestion:
That on the 8th day of September,
Owing to the great congestion
Of birthdays which we should remember,

The whole communion Anglican
Pause to reflect on that fine morn
On just how spiffing, how jolly grand
It is that we have all been born.
