Forty-two years is
like a song Old and fondly sung, Relevant to any age, Trite, but never wrong. Yet underneath there is a love Too densely wrought to sing, Well-tempered in the weight of years, Of passion made, and spring. Yes, there it is: a madrigal Evolved into a life, A gift amidst one's wandering Reserved for man and wife, Sweet song of man and wife.
