Here's a sonnet for your anniversary,
A little poem to brighten up your day,
Pleased to be considered more than cursory,
Pleased to be perused along your way.
Yet tuneful words are sometimes out of tune:
From a distance one applies one's art
In all good faith to what one must assume --
Feelings that one conjures in one's heart.
There in the fiery cauldron of one's love
Emotions can be hammered into grace,
Each with little heft and much to prove,
Now situate where form and sense embrace.
Then off the tiny package goes to you,
Hoping it's both beautiful and true.
