Jonathan ROBIN (22 September / London)
After Dinner - Margaret and Richard
Most couples, from their future, with dismay
Attempt to hide as years add tears to doubt,
Reminding one that life seems roundabout
Gone haywire, with its genius astray.
And yet you set example day-to-day
Regrets no space retain, inside or out.
Each in his way should vain conventions flout,
Though few give striking proof succeed we may.
Rewards are justly won. The interplay
Instinctive of your talents is without
Counterfeit or bluff though all about
Hope for mere fraction of your worth to lay
A sure foundation for that joy which I
Rise up to toast, pair love does sanctify.
