Approaching 50 years of marriage


by Henry Burt Stevens
10/30/2003

This thing we do each morning
rise and look in each other's eyes
will soon be more than 50 years.

Will we, like those
who burn a paid mortgage
tear up the license we no longer need?

Our little club of two
briefly joined by three
grown up and gone.

Now on our own again
among the rocks and rapids
we keep our craft afloat.

We don't need a high rocky ledge
to view ahead, we only guide
on glances, the touch of hands.

How wonderful to be married that long and I salute you. My parents were married 54 years.
