Hard to Believe You've Been Married So Long Already
Hear me read the poem:|
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
Hard to believe you've been married so long already!
A moment is a box of supple size.
Praise be the years-peaceful, rich, and steady-
Passing motionless before our eyes.
Yet time is the eternal in disguise.
For you now time is like a restless sea:
In wind-blown haste above, below serene.
Feelings flow in tidal ecstasy
That climaxes in currents deep as dream.
Hours, days, months, years one moment seem.
