#47 (“My Sweet’, dear Paul, my spouse for life. . .)

 

                        My Sweet’, dear Paul, my spouse for life for sure;

                        A happy birthday wish for you—in truth!

                        Ye are a wise man sure; therefore don’t rue

                        The day because time marcheth on—foresooth!

                        O’r days do seem so fill’d with promise clear.

                        Big choice we make this month just past for us.

                        Now house ye get for day of birth—no mere

                        Abode, but fill’d with promise true.  We must

                        Be grateful for o’r bounty full it is!

                        Much promise good for two we find in Miss’.

                        I love thee much and long for more in years

                        As wife of yours who oft’ doth reach for kiss!

                                    “If this be error and upon me proved;

                                    I never write, nor no man ever loved!”
