Happy Birthday Crystal!

I guess with all this Harry Potter on the brain, I'll go with a good Sorting Hat tribute...

There's plenty hidden in her head
For all of us to find
She'll tell you here and there the facts
And juicy truths will unwind.

I'm not so sure the sorting hat
Could put her in her place
So many talents she does have
No one can keep her pace.

One thing we know for sure is this:
A Slytherin she's not
Any means to get her way is not
The way that she's been taught.

A Ravenclaw would welcome her
To sit and dine with them
Many topics she could discuss at length,
Her head's full to the brim.

And Hufflepuff could use a gal
Who stands beside her friends
Through thick and thin supports us all
Enduring to the end.

But Gryffindor, oh Gryffindor
"Where dwell the brave at heart
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart."

I think at times it may be hard
To figure out what's right
But with Crystal standing next to you
Everything will gleam with light!

Thanks H! I've never had a birthday poem written about me, let alone a sorting hat one. That was fabulous and a fun birthday treat for me this morning. I appreciate it. You're a great friend (and fast at getting that post up).
