Ode to My Wife

In a world of many wonders
I ne’er expect to see
A lass who’ll hold my fancy
As bountifully as thee

You came to me in springtime
And now it’s nearing fall
Our autumn time together
Should be the best of all

The little ones are grown now
With young ones of their own
And even those are at the age
To be out on their own

One day there’ll be a new crop
Of wee ones coming on
They’ll bring their hugs and kisses
To “Great” Memaw and Pepaw
