Music: Fugue in A Major. By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques .
Happy birthday, Mom, from your dear daughter! As you would put me first, so I now you, Pleased to have this chance to change the order, Pleased to please your heart in all I do. Yield, then, for this day the joy of giving; Be a receiver temporarily, Inverting your accustomed way of living, Returning soon enough to normalcy. The interim, I trust, will be a pleasure, Happy to the undefended root, Delight too deep to monitor or measure, A retrogression one can only treasure, Yet know too well the years have rendered moot.
