Happy sixteenth anniversary! After all these years, still in love! Perhaps not more or less, but differently, Perhaps because we know what time has proved. Years flow past our bit of riverside Singing inconsolably of beauty. In sympathy, we watch the boats go by, Xeroxing our poems in praise of duty. There is in home an antidote for time, Even as love lasts beyond a life, Each passion pressed into a paradigm New realized in the grace of man and wife. The love that lasts is stubborn, tough, and
strong, Having need to need, both shared and long.
