Day You Were Born
Monday's Child is fair of face,
Tuesday's Child is full of grace,
Wednesday's Child is full of woe,
Thursday's Child has far to go,
Friday's Child is loving and giving,
Saturday's Child works hard for a living,
But the Child that is born on the Sabbath Day,
Is witty and wise and good and gay!
Note to our younger readers:
This is a very old traditional poem written when the word 'gay' meant very happy and cheerful.
The Sabbath Day in the poem is Sunday.
