Sing With Me

My Hero.

Born and raised in China
And studied in Beijing,
She was considered brilliant
In most everything!

 

Fine malariologist,

Found artemisinin,

Won the Nobel prize in ‘15

For the fight that she did win.

 

Millions have been saved by her,

The road she walked was rough!

But singing Happy Birthday to

Tu Youyou? Well, it’s tough!



Cause Mondays do get knocked a lot,
With poetry, we all besought
To try to make the week begin
With gentle thoughts,
Perhaps a grin?
So KarenCharlotteMimi, me
Have crafted poems for you to see.
And now you’ve read what we have wrought…
Did we help?
Or did we not?

Next Monday's Independence Day!
You really cannot stay away!

Thinking of joining us for Poetry Monday?
We'd love to welcome you!
Topics for the next few weeks (with a huge thank-you to Mimi, who comes up with so many of them!)...

  1. Yeah, that's a tough one:) But it's not her birthday today, so you got to sing the un-birthday song which is easier to do :D

  3. I am sure she is very appreciative. She deserves many accolades. We need more women like her!

  4. I have to admit I had to look her up but her accomplishments are very impressive.

  5. 91 years young! Her story is amazing. We'll have plenty of time to practice singing "Happy Birthday" for (hopefully) her 92nd birthday in December.

  6. Excellent! Yes, singing the song to her would be difficult, but i'm sure she would appreciate it anyway.
