A Decade

Today is the 31st anniversary of my first days of wine and honey with the person I married. So it's been more like, um, three decades . . . but who's counting?

A Decade

When you came, you were like red wine
and honey,
And the taste of you burnt my mouth
with its sweetness.
Now you are like morning bread,
Smooth and pleasant.
I hardly taste you at all for I know your
savour,
But I am completely nourished.

A very happy anniversary to you both. 31 years? What, did you meet in kindergarten?

Jeanne said...

Thank you all for the good wishes! Harriet, we met in my first year of college. Today is the anniversary of when we decided to get married, not our actual wedding, which took place a few years later.

Happy anniversary! 31 years is exactly how long I've been alive. A long time, I mean. Congratulations!

Jeanne said...

Ella, I knew I was showing my age! Thanks.

Congrats on such a long and successful marriage! That poem is wonderful and so accurate (even though I'm only at 8 years so far).
