Twenty-four and Counting

We wed two dozen years ago today 

Enjoying every aspect of our love 

And working for tomorrows yet unseen 

And giving, giving of our very essence 


We’ve pushed the trolley up the lumpy hill

When wild winds lashed rain into our face

And icy breezes chilled us to the marrow

And arrows punched their way into our dreams


We hunkered, souls engaged and interlinked

Sharing each the other’s strength and counsel

Greeting days with pleasant resolution

Until the sun came wandering to view


Twenty-four full hours in each day

And our day is brightened by the stars

As planets track their influence through clouds

And moon and sun keep faith in tides and hours
