#14 (“We soon will celebrate a sixteenth year. . .”)

 

                        We soon will celebrate a sixteenth year

                        Together—Paul and I, a couple sure.

                        The date is April, time of spring and dear

                        The memory of love, for lonely:  cure!

                        We heard sweet sounds on first o’r date in South;

                        The night was warm, the thrill had just begun.

                        We said but little but the charm of mouth

                        And word’ is little when a love hath sun.

                        Yea, bright the joy and light of love, us two;

                        Though night, it seem’d the day of love had come,

                        O’r joy fulfill’d in day to come, not rue

                        O’r sadness, singlehood, was all but done.

                                    “If this be error and upon me proved,

                                    I never writ, nor no man ever loved.”*

 *Shakespeare, Sonnet #116.
