Henry Moore
This day is known for climbing peaks 
It's known for smoothing angled beaks
It's not business or founding fathers
It's not remorse of weeping daughters
It keeps me chained to brands redoubled
It speaks its mind, its thoughts are troubled
It hangs its hat by draughty doorways
It plays its sports on smooth green baize
It bows its heads to cruellest masters
It licks its lips and courts disasters
This day is known for climbing towers
This day is cursed for losing hours.

Henry Moore, English artist, was born today in 1898.

Henry Ford, American business man, was born on this day in 1863.
