twenty years ago

twenty years ago
at the midpoint of my life
I went to Little Gidding
and found myself a wife
by a chapel in a mist
we sat but did not kiss
twenty years ago
in the evening

now twenty valentines
I celebrate in rhyme
with a fire and a rose
and my being
by a chapel in a mist
we waited for that kiss
twenty years ago
at Little Gidding

  1. Many thanks oldmainer! Our first date was on Valentine’s Day – so special indeed. I just hope she likes it when I show it to her over dinner!
