'Fan The Flame'


Twenty-five years of marital bliss,
Almost all of it good times, great times
Like this.
Oh, but we've had our ups and downs,
A couple of times was hit or miss-
Dark clouds moved in, and smiles turned to frowns.
But better days were ahead-
Our vows saw us through,
What was ment, was said.
Now, after more mellow years,
Mostly laughter, not tears.
My face lights up when I say
Your name-
Victoria, our passion's Hot-
Fan the Flame!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We were at a our best friends birthday bash last night, and the conversation was flowing as freely as the liquor, and we started to talk about plans for our 25th Anniversary and I looked at the candle on the table... at the flame- and I wrote this, and read it aloud to my Wife, Victoria, in front of everybody there. It was quite a moment.

    What a realistic way to look back on the married life, right at the brink of 25th anniversary. Amqzing, I was also thinking with same kind of feelings. If I penned my feelings just the way you did, perhaps it would have been quite similar. Best wishes for your sweet anniversary! I enjoyed the poem to the maximum. (Report) Reply

    How sweet. I appreciate the slight hint of realisticness. The author was smart to add that there were bad times. It helps the reader to identify more than if the author had only mentioned things being perfect. What a testament to marriage and life. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
