Born to the sun V

by Jem Croucher
Back in the fifties
and born to the sun
a Thursday's child
knew he had begun

Growing up in the sixties
never sun to eschew
this Thursday's child 
was still nearly new

And then cam the seventies
formative years
a teen to his twenties
with joy and yes, tears

The eighties and children
a girl and a boy
to this child of the summer
two bundles of joy

And then to the nineties
and two further girls
for more joy and happiness
giggles and curls

Born to the sun
the millennium came
and though he was older
he felt just the same

Twenty-tens and his fifties
the making of man
for wisdom and tenure 
as only life can

Which brings up to now
the twenties are here
and a seventh decade
brings more of that cheer

This 'born to the sun'
Thursday's cild has long known
with the secret of summer
sixty-two years have shown
