In the cold of winter, we said, “I do”
with December snow on the ground
and candles burning brightly.
And now my love,
winter is fast approaching;
And, after fifty-one years
we’re still together.
Our abiding love lives on…
“till death do us part”
Today is Quadrille Monday at d’Verse. Lisa asked to use the word abide for our prompt and write a poem of 44 words. She gave us various uses of the word, one of which was the old hymn Abide With Me. That took me back to the songs of my childhood. I decided to use write in reference to love. The end of December will be fifty-one years for us. It just seemed fitting to write of our abiding love; resting on, depending on, secure in the vows we made so many years ago.
I took these flower photos at about 3:30 this afternoon, blooming in my back yard on November 30th! Who would believe? Frost comes again tomorrow morning.
