For You, Margaret

When things are good to say

It’s good to say them

It spreads the light

Scatters dark away

On this October morning

In the sunshine

I look upon your face

And have to say


In words now borrowed

From a song I used to sing

I say again

The truest, truest thing

Words so simple

Make my heart to swell

For you are beautiful

And I have loved you dearly

More dearly

Than the spoken word can tell
