Writers Circle In Heaven

I’m not much of a poet, but in honor of Jane Austen’s birthday, I decided to write a poem in her honor.

She sits in the writers circle in heaven

Where all of the greats sit

The ones whose mortal bones are no longer of this earth, but their words are immortal

Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens, The Brontes, Radcliffe, Shelley and Byron

They toast her on her birthday in heaven

As we do on earth

As we read and re-read her books again and again

As we watch movies about her life and based on her books

As we debate who played Darcy better, Colin Firth or Matthew MacFadeyn

As we toast her on, this day, the 238th anniversary of her birth

Happy Birthday Jane, our lives would not be the same without you
