When I consider how our time has sped,
I am amazed at all that we have done—
both bridges fared and those we dared not tread—
throughout this threefold circling of the Sun.
Yet not for this I come to you, whose bed
I share and where, my love, I thank the one
who gave me peace, revived my muse, and led
my soul to grace through touch and hearth and fun.
