Valentine: O6tyish-Style: for Audrey
Another February slides with all deliberate
The valley in iced bandage bides in
more snow than it needs,
Only the slightly lengthening days,
only the brightening sky
Fend off the winter's long malaise to
keep Spring hopes alive.
But Oh! 'Twill soon be Valentine's.
And that's a goodly thing.
Let me lift a toast to that soul divine
who wears my wedding ring.
She is the sweetest lady any king or
saint could boast:
Not sixty years of loving her could
dim my wish to toast
Her goodness, loving-kindness, nobility
And that blithe spirit shining through
her matchless, lovely face.
A saving day is Valentine's from all
the winter's woe
For it lifts up sweet Audrey Ann, my
mate so apropos.
Aud, you were God's best gift to me,
my proof that He is there
Giving me you, his miracle, in answer
to my prayer.
