The birthday shines, when logs not burn, but men…

“So may you live in honour, as in name,
If with this truth you be inspired;
So may
This day
Be more and long desired;
And with the flame
Of love be bright,
As with the light
Of bonfires! then
The birthday shines, when logs not burn, but men.”
Ode to Sir William Sidney on His Birthday, Ben Johnson –
sublime
