Forty-two years is like a song
Old and fondly sung,
Relevant to any age,
Trite, but never wrong.
Yet underneath there is a love
Too densely wrought to sing,
Well-tempered in the weight of years,
Of passion made, and spring.
Yes, there it is: a madrigal
Evolved into a life,
A gift amidst one's wandering
Reserved for man and wife,
Sweet song of man and wife.
