I know how to spell your name, it’s true….
But I’m not sure how you pronounce you.
‘Tis a rhyming challenge with needs phonemic
To offer birthday wishes free of seeds polemic.
So I thought I would try a phonetic 3-way
And hope you’ll cede me a soupcon of leeway:
Happy birthday to my blog friend, Michaeline,
Whose age sets the stage, with old vintage wine,
For a toast to that well-traveled Ms Michelin,
Who retired ere tires were invented, way back when.
And last, but not deceased, I salud! Micheleen,
Whose birth day was a feast day on this day in 1915.
Be thee 100 years (less or more),
May there be another 100 in store.
