On Our Fourth Anniversary
My Gnomie has created this wonderful composition
and has written this especial poem
for our Fourth Wedding Anniversary.
it was the soul of a boy
to have dreamed a dream
in day no less
of castles away in Spain,
out the window beyond the sky
past clouded classroom teachings.
sailing the airs of Beethoven´s Ninth
the niña the pinta and Santa María
seeking his mate to return to age
again but a boy in recitation.
together we two
these years of four
fifty years hence Iberia reached,
you are my Ode to Joy.
