Birthday Greetings For My Sister

This birthday greeting poem is for the youngest of our family of five sisters. In spite of having her ups and downs (as we all do), she has been a joy from day one, always happy and never has a bad word for anyone. The poem is written in lines of ten syllables, with four rhyming quatrain stanzas, and ending with a rhyming couplet.
