valentine's day 2007

to say that this marks a gigantic turn
is not enough for words convey so much
but cannot hope indeed to reach or touch
the human things that we may hope to earn
all the plans we make all the facts we learn
obliged to lean on an uncertain crutch
still there's a pole which we may clutch
and in our hearts a golden fire will burn
now this great step that we together take
will lead to roots a simple place to stand
and sastisfy our need for light and space
the life we share requires a home we make
a place where all comes readily to hand
and gives our hearts a proper dwelling-place
