Subject(s): Anniversaries; Love


The mighty tides of fate still ebb and flow.
The mighty moons of fortune wax and wane.
Death and disaster out of pleasure grow
And God's high ecstasy returns again.

Some green, delightful oases are found
In the enormous desert of despair,
Some lovely acres of enchanted ground,
Some sunny regions of celestial air.

But that which grows where nothing flourisheth,
And that which blooms where ruin else would be,
And that which heals the sting of even death
Is love -- and I love thee and thou lov'st me.
