Age of Aquarius POEMS
Every time I look at you, I see many
Lovely and beautiful things.
I can’t enough of you and what you are,
Just can’t imagine my life without you.
And now, you turn another year in your life
Hopefully, one of many more to come.
Dear Mr. Bluebird why do you sing?
Oh, you see, because of everything!
For the sun, the flowers, and even the trees
I’m quite happy with all that I see!
Oh Mr. Bluebird, what a joy!
You’re so happy, oh boy oh boy!
Tell me your secret, please, real quick!
Doesn’t matter if clouds are thin or thick
Look for the good, no matter the case!
Always keep a smile on your face
And maybe a song in your heart!
Now I must go, for I’ve done my part!
But oh Mr. Bluebird, please tell me why!
Real quick now, before we say goodbye!
Real quick then, for I really must go!
We should not be weighted down so
By mean people and sorrow and fear
We must make the most of our time here
For we will all leave one day
And now we must part ways!
Farewell and thank you Mr. Bluebird!
For your time and wise words
I wish you could stay and talk some more!
Same here, but I must go before
Winter sets in and it gets real cold
Now’s the best time when it’s all gold
So farewell, farewell, till winter’s end
When I return with all my friends!
A Cheery Song
To hear a choir of bluebirds sing
Oh such a wondrous thing!
They make every day such a happy time
With their upbeat tunes, rhythm, and rhyme!
Ask about their color and name, you’ll see
How they got it is no real mystery
The sky above provides a clue
It’s no wonder why they’re blue!
When they sing, the clouds seem to fly
This way and that, revealing a sapphire sky
The sun shines through without a care
Like a crystal with sparkle and flare
Letting us know that life still has its ups
To get over the downs with a half-full cup.
So follow the bluebirds on their cheerful path
Forgive and forget all wrongs, sorrows, and wrath
Lead a life filled with love and cheer
Be good to those whom you meet here
And maybe we’ll see each other again soon
Somewhere far beyond the moon.
**Poems by, Amanda P.
Enchanting music comes floating off the sheet
Lyrics are bouncing in time to the beat
Inspiring listeners to get up and move
Jazz is the sound that makes you groove
Artistic dance steps liven up the hall
Harmony and rhythm, at the midnight ball
Musing on Music
Music is magic for the ears
Music can bring us to tears
Music is a language all by itself
Music can help when times are tough
With a little tap from the conductor’s baton
Come the first notes of the orchestra’s song.
The melody rises into the air like a mighty bird
Conveying meaning and emotions without a word.
The tune goes up and down to stay in the air
Like the wings of a bird, to get everywhere.
It feels like the music is taking us for a ride
To magical places, though we’re still inside.
To let our minds soar with such beauty is a God-send,
But, as with all things, even this journey must end.
As the orchestra reaches the end of its symphony,
So too our minds come to the conclusion of a journey;
And even though the music is bringing us back in
It leaves us with a sense of peace from within.
**Poems by, Amanda P.
Electric blue is the color of his eyes
Like a clear morning of cloudless skies
It’s great to see him laugh and smile
Just to see the stars in his eyes a while
And though he looks like an angel from above
He still needs a woman’s devotion and true love.
**By, Amanda P.
Forget me not, Carnation
Two special flowers grow in the meadow
Tending to lean towards the river’s flow
Growing tall and steady, reaching for the sun
Bringing joy and cheer into the lives of everyone.
To see forget-me-nots, bluebirds will go extra miles
For their steadfastness and simple styles.
They value those who are honest and true
Always rocking the land in shades of blue.
The carnations live a life so glamorous and grand
The larks swoop in and become a live band
Swinging and swaying to music of the show
They parade around in all shade of the rainbow.
It becomes a regular party when nighttime falls
With weeping willows acting as the castle walls
Music surfs in and out of the midnight air
Bringing joyous sounds to weary ears everywhere.

Your Birthday Elijah, I guess, is a great occasion to express
Feelings, love, greetings, joy and to share a few
Artworks, videos, stories, poems and submissions
Creative works and thoughts of those who care for you
Each year’s a book and every page
Is filled with lots of amazing tales
Of movies, music, adventures,
Records, festivals, games, awards
Charity events and so much more
Your talent and passion that inspire us all
Your endless search for new and unique
Reflects in every project and opportunity that you seek
Lijah, all that you’ve accomplished or achieved
Is fantastic, awesome and for your fans is a real treat!
Elijah dear, you deserve the best & may you always be
Blessed with everything that makes you happy
Lij, you’re so kind, thoughtful and down to earth
Special and ingenious, with a truly loving heart
May each path that you choose fulfill your dreams
And lead you to reach the most wonderful goals
Full of excitement and surprises may your Birthday be
All the best and lots of love on turning thirty three!

All are blessed
the universe rejoices
the world listens
How, I am wondering
did heaven ever let you go.

A Unique and Precious Celebration
With every day and every year
There’s more to celebrate Elijah dear
Your every choice and every path
Makes you complete and more than that
Brings to light more of you:
Perfect, special, kind and true
Passions, skills, you’ve got them all
A great fascination for music
And enthusiasm galore
May thrilling occasions arise to you
In all that you do and you dream, too.
For all the ingenuity and talent
That you’ve got
You’ve earned awards, the fame
Recognition and acclaim
Though for many this would count
You give importance not to that
But to all that makes us proud
Of knowing you, Lij, your loving heart
Like being humble, down to earth,
Caring and thoughtful, no doubt.
Since you were born and up to now
You’ve stood out from the crowd
Remarkable you’ve always been
Your amazing traits so many have seen
For all that and so much more
We wish you Elijah lots of love and joy
Great achievements and new opportunities
Outstanding experiences & many blessings
Have a blast and lots of fun
On this exciting Birthday, 31!

The Power of Elijation
No matter how old you get
You never get old from me
No matter how far you are
You never get far from me
Your smile can throb the oceans
and shake the sky
Your eyes can fuel the fire, beat the thunder
and can never lie
They can glow like a diamond
The shine that I can never shine
When I look at your face
I can see the moonlight
You belong to my heart
and my love never dies
It’s been ten years and I still did not stop liking him
He must have some sort of constant magic that never fades away
It’s also feel that he’s getting younger each year
Or it is probably the age defying magic potion that he drinks each day
May this year make an unlimited success for him! I wish him all the best from the deep bottom of my heart.
Happy Birthday to him! Always & Forever!
A One Of A Kind Birthday
Three decades ago, an amazing soul was born
An incredible acting talent would later show
As the years passed, so famous he became
Though many would’ve changed, he stayed the same
Lij, fame and glory mean nothing to you
“A star’s nothing but a ball of gas”, that’s so true
You give, touch lives & never expect anything in return
We have so much from you to learn!
All your fans can’t wait to see
What your next steps will be
We hope and pray, no matter what
You’ll always find the most wonderful path
Lij, dream, reach the heights
Life is yours to discover
Each day’s a new adventure that awaits
To be uncovered
Your love for music will always inspire
People to share your passion and desire
So unique and special you are, thus
You never stop to surprise and amaze us
Your wise words reach deep within our hearts
On your face shine the kindest thoughts
You help and touch those in need
Thanks to you, so many people live!
Elwood, you’re so genuine and humble
You don’t take things for granted
In your life’s journey, whatever you choose to do
May God bless you and always guide you!
On this truly awesome day, to celebrate
Those who care for you can’t wait
To send you gifts, messages, videos and mails
Postcards, drawings and even poems
You deserve it all and so much more
You’re truly sweet & kindhearted – that’s for sure
Lij, hope you have the most magical Birthday ever
And the love we send your way will stay with you forever
Have lots of fun and much cheer
Hope it’s a fascinating one, Elijah dear
Excitement, happiness and love, may you have plenty
On this absolutely fabulous day, on turning 30!

Eyes so captivating,
Eyes so true.
Eyes lighter than the sky,
Yet deeper than the oceans of blue.
Full of Trust, Emotion, and Enchantment.
Sincere, Hope, and Generosity,
Only with a hint of Curiosity.
His eyes that is the key to light her way,
Out of this dark and gloomy day.
The rain came pouring down,
As is swept across the town.
And there he saw the young girl,
Who seemed as if she was off in her own world,
Elijah certainly did not want to cause a fuss,
In yet he didn’t care-it was a must.
Taking off the coat and seeing the girl shiver,
He was positive that he was feeling his own lips quiver.
For moments the rain had dropped,
Oh, could it ever be stopped?
Pulling the girl towards his damp shirt,
Elijah then noticed so much filthy dirt,
Her shirt that used to be so blue,
Still was forever true.
Looking up at him with such temptation,
That he was genuinely a blue captivation.
A Truly Blessed Birthday
Special, joyful Birthday we have to celebrate
I’m sure there’s something you can make
Maybe you would like to drink a glass of wine
Watch some of Lijah’s movies or even make a pie
Listen to music, play a video game or drink some beer
He sure loves all these and would join you with much cheer
Anything you do today, please celebrate
And make a special wish for him, he would appreciate
A man like Elijah is one of a kind
So many qualities in one guy it’s rare to find
He’s so thoughtful and caring, I’m sure you agree
His kindness and generosity in his charity actions you can see
He loves the new and different and seeks out adventure
Music is his passion and reveals his sensible nature
He’s so famous indeed but so down to earth and sweet
To become his fan is a call that many cannot resist
To see Lij acting is truly divine
And all of his work displays an unique style
Elijah, hope you have a very special day
We love you more than we can say
You bring us so much joy, pleasure and excitement
With your smile, amazing soul & eyes and brilliant talent
All the best, lots of love and blessings in your life
And have an awesome Birthday on turning 29!

The Legacy Of You
You make me happy when I am blue.
You’ve touched my life by just being you.
Your sweetness and kindness wrapped up in a smile,
Are qualities that won’t go out of style.
And though we’ve never even met,
You’re the one person I’ll never forget.
I care for you just for who you are,
Not because you are some huge star.
We all live and we all die,
And we all have to say goodbye.
But it’s what we do and what we leave
Not what great awards we achieve.
Yes, I’m proud of the trophies you’ve won
Almost as much as anyone.
But you are leaving so much more
In the hearts of those who you care for.
Love and kindness, being polite,
Genuine reality, and doing what’s right.
Things that Hollywood seldom sees,
But you’ll be remembered for all of these.
So Lij, on your birthday I’d like to say
Thanks for not just following the fray.
Keep on shining and you will see
You are leaving a legacy…

Dear Elijah Wood,
I’m writing this little note to you
To wish you all the best,

No ways to explain your beauty, or your skills.
You are a work of your own,
And get better as you go.
Don’t ever stop,
You inspire many souls.
Congrats on your Birthday,
And many more.

A Heart-felt Wish for an Amazing Soul
For your birthday Elijah, I guess
There are no words that can express
Wishes, thoughts and feelings true
From everyone who cares for you
Your loving heart, your soul’s so kind
Thank you so much cause you find
Always time for smiles and hugs
Giving endless autographs
Grateful for your amazing acting too
No one can compare to you
Every night you close your eyes
Think of all your loved ones
The moonlight sends its shine to you
The nature sings to you its grace
Hope that all your dreams come true
For every new step that you make
And any challenge that you take
Will bring you high beyond your dreams
Leaving behind you any fears
Where mountains end and sky begins
Above the land, the woods and plains
Where stars are shining long after .
their time has passed
Where there’s no end, no time, no past
But only things that always last
Like love and friendship, peace and joy
Amazing feelings that make you fly
May light shine always in your eyes
And your face glow in the sunrise
May your life be always blessed
In ways the words cannot express!

The Aquarian Man
The Aquarian male is a wonderful man
A guy who spreads joy wherever he can
Sure of himself and unique in his style
With a face that lights up with a beautiful smile
His kindness to strangers and loyalty to friends
Reveals a true heart in which love never ends
In his eyes there is kindness that shines from within
His voice echoes laughter and his mouth wears a grin
While loving adventure and longing to roam
He knows the importance of family and home
A passion for music he also displays
And joy that he shares in so many ways
The Aquarian man is a wonderful kind
And one in particular I have in mind
Though he lives so far away
I wish him the best for his special birthday

Elwood Who’s So Good
A Dr. Seuss Parody
In eastern Iowa
Where fields of corn do grow,
A new baby did show.
He was named Elijah
Has a mom named Debbie.
Locked her out of the house
When he was less than three! :-O
As he grew she found that
He had much energy
Climbed up on everything
And was called the Monkey.
So all he would do was to
And Debbie just could not
keep up with her son.
An idea Struck!
Watching TV, what luck!
Then she saw something that do he could!
And she saw it!
At that he’d be good!
And she said to self:
“Send him to model I should!”
“I know that it’s new
But I’m sure he could do it.
I’ll sign him and Zach
Together to go through it.”
She found model school
And the brothers went there.
And then to L.A.
They all flew through the air.
Elijah so impressed
An agent at the show
That into acting
He decided to go.
So the family moved
From Midwest to L.A.
With his sister Hannah,
But, dad Warren did stay.
And it didn’t take long
For Elwood to turn pro
He soon had a role
In music video.
And agent said “Yes! Yes!
You sure will make it here!
You’re Elwood Who’s So Good
With talent” that is clear!
“This is fun!” said Elwood
“I am having a ball!
This is fun!” said Elwood
And he could play roles all:
A Video Game Boy,
Sean, Michael Kaye also
Luke, Willard Young, and Mike
Little Boy, Nat, Day-O,
Mark Evans and North
And the well-known Huck Finn
Stu Simmons in The War
Elwood just jumped right in.
Look at him!
Look at him!
Look at him now!
It is fun to play roles
But you have to know how!
Was Sandy in Flipper,
Got to swim with dolphins!
Mikey in The Ice Storm
Artful Dodger Dawkins.
Leo in Deep Impact,
The Faculty’s Casey
Barney, Wren, second Sean
And another Mikey.
That’s impressive so far
Elwood’s career stood tall.
But, that is not all!
That is not all. . .
The best was yet to come
The role of a lifetime
In a big trilogy
Elwood got the role prime.
Made an audition tape
With a costume rental.
Filmed it up in the hills
From more than one angle.
And that got him the part
As the hobbit Frodo
In the Lord of the Rings.
To New Zealand did go.
They filmed for 16 months.
He made lifelong friends too.
And with these three big films
Elijah’s fame just grew.
Elwood’s fan base increased,
Fan websites did appear.
Lucy’s A&F won
A prize year after year.
And so what was next
For Elwood Who’s So Good?
Did he pack it in,
Hang out in his neighborhood?
No! “I just like to act.
Oh, I like it a lot!”
Said Elwood Who’s So Good
To stop now I will not.
I will not go away.
I do not wish to go!
And so, said Elwood Who’s So Good
so. . .
I will show you
Some other good roles in a row.
There was All I Want’s Jones,
Cameo as The Guy,
Became a Hooligan
Was star of EII.
Stole panties as Patrick
In Eternal Sunshine.
As Sin City’s Kevin
On people he did dine.
Played tourist in Paris,
Voiced penguin who can’t sing,
William at the hotel
To see Bobby speaking.
As Aaron gets drafted
In the film Day Zero.
For The Oxford Murders
To England he did go.
Then they needed extras
For scene in lecture hall,
So some fans that I know
Were there to heed the call.
Lent his voice to some games
Three of them as Spyro,
Plus new one based on Rings
So returned as Frodo.
And voiced a doll for 9,
Will do Spyro movie,
Had a few short guest spots
On some shows on TV.
He will play Iggy Pop
If they make that movie,
And, in Hobbit prequels
The same folks we may see.
What else will future hold
For Elwood Who’s So Good?
Well, we can’t really tell,
Though I wish that we could.
He might choose to direct
Or produce a movie,
Or make use of passion
Has for photography.
He’ll work on his label
Which he calls Simian.
And support good causes
Like I am African,
He’ll do art with sick kids
Stuck in the hospital
Art of Elysium’s
Group that makes possible.
And as for other things,
That Elijah may do.
Well. . .
What would you say
If we were to ask you?
The date draws ever near
when I will turn 28
one year older
one year wiser
My friends will come
join in my celebration
to another great year
in this place I call home
**By, Elizabeth Coffey
A Fan’s Celebration
To the pen she is accountable
With longing insurmountable
To create a work stupendous
For tremendous Mr. Wood
For the moment she s conceiving
Ways to write what she s perceiving
Yes he looks like Spring time evening!
Ever fair Elijah Wood.
Oh those eyes of deep blue aster
He with skin of alabaster
How she wishes they had cast her
On the screen with Mr. Wood
Her soliloquy should grace him
She decides, since she can t chase him
And her heart cannot erase him
A seraph s face, Elijah Wood
Graceful, kind and so soft-spoken
Action, horror, drama, Tolkien
Oh the hearts he must have broken
Out of reach Elijah Wood
Then she finds her mind reliving
All the gifts she dreamed of giving
Diamonds, horses, islands even
For a smile from Mr. Wood
She has thought of gifts a plenty
For a man of eight and twenty,
Chocolates, pens, an elephant, he
Would have got them if he could.
So she settles on a letter
He might read it, so it s better
He may never get the sweater
Happy Birthday Mr. Wood!
Beautiful blue-eyed baby boy,
Crawling around and playing with toys.
Nobody knows what he’ll grow up to be,
Too far in the future for them to see.
Full of life, full of joy,
An amusing, outgoing little boy.
Moves to LA on the wings of a dream,
Starting a life on the silver screen.
Bright-eyed teen idol, child no more,
Professional actor with roles galore.
Teenager to adult, and cygnet to swan,
The roles keep coming and the show goes on.
