Weathered Spoons

Weathered spoons make a grand setting

On a plain table with frayed lace
Two sets of seasoned eyes gaze into each other
Evoking the years of wedded grace

In a time when marriage is a limited contract
In all too many lives, too many homes
The commitment of life long contact
Reminds us that there is love that lasts

Weathered Spoons (c)2003 Quentin Clingerman

Note: Dedicated to all those who have remained faithful to their spouses, each to the other, through even the golden years.
