Happy Fourth Anniversary
Music: Nunc dimittis servum.
By Daniel Lagkhner.

|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Happy fourth anniversary!|
A moment to reflect on life and love.
Praised be those who whittle what they see,
Presuming their surroundings to improve.
Yearning needs companionship, and choice
Finds most content when joined, as though in song,
Open to a harmonizing voice,
United in conviction twice as strong.
Rejoice, then, in the fortune of your fate,
The sweet dependence of your chosen state,
Happy in a love where you belong.
