Birthday Verse

By John Hertz: Congratulations on the 8th birthday of File 770. I wrote you this Birthday Poem. It’s acrostic (read down the first letter of each line) in unrhymed 5-7-5-7-7-syllable form.

Gathering rosebuds,
Leaving not the thorns behind,
Year by month by day,
Elucidatingly or
Ready for light others bring.
