MONDAY’S CHILD (a few Monday wishes for my readers)

“Monday’s child is fair of face.”
(A line from an old Mother Goose rhyme).

Somehow, I think a person coming into the world on a Monday would almost need to be “fair of face,” or bright-eyed and bushy tailed, as another old phrase goes, in order to approach the beginning of the sometimes daunting first day of the week with an attitude of enthusiasm and active energy, and set off for the week on the right foot.

Dear Readers,

Here’s a wish or two I hope you’ll use
to tap the words of Mother Goose

May you all muster up
your inner “Monday’s child” today,
to give you hope,
and help you make the best
of this one day–
the only one we’ve really got
within our grip,
that we each can live
in our own way.

To add a further wish,
I’ll say:

May all your yesterdays
light you to
a clean, fresh light,
and bring
your visions of tomorrow
much clearer to your eyes
and nearer in your deepening sight.
