In 1996, the year that I was born.

Andrew nine, Aaron seven, Jason four, Jared almost two.

My mother had a baby girl to adorn.



Gasoline cost a dollar twenty-one when I was born.

A record blizzard and the wind blew,

In 1996, the year that I was born.



Eighty-six year old Great Grandmother tooted her horn.

Rejoicing were four other grandparents too.

My mother had a baby girl to adorn.



Reelected President Clinton his oath sworn,

Prince Charles and Princess Diana no longer say “I do.”

In 1996, the year that I was born.



On a plane to Minnesota with Mom and Dad one morn,

Daddy to Romania and Kazakhstan flew.

My mother had a baby girl to adorn.



Four big brothers no longer forlorn

Their life would be different they knew.

My mother had a baby girl to adorn.

In 1996, the year that I was born.
