On Mrs O' Keeffe's One Hundred Birthday

For a century of living she does not seem on the wane
She has lived through many Seasons Mr's O' Keeffe of Mill View Lane
Devoted to her children and to her late husband Batt a good wife
In Millstreet Town she has lived the most of her life
But perhaps in Newmarket she is destined to stay
Till her life's journey's end though that may not be for many a day
Since she first saw light of day back in nineteen sixteen
The many changes that time does bring she would have seen
As nice a person as one could wish for to meet
She made so many friends in her years in Millstreet
Life has it's good days and bad days and laughter and tears
And not many do live for a century of years
Her best years may be in the forever gone
But beyond her one hundred birthday she is living on.
