This post is Part 1 of a writing series titled Love.

I love to hear the robin sing;
The veery’s song just thrills me through.
But both would have a hollow ring
If they, and life, weren’t shared with you.

Enthralled by lofty mountain heights
And peaceful rivers far below,
Yet still I find these lovely sights
Are doubly rich with you, you know.

To watch the setting sunlight go
‘Cross rippling ponds, like shimmering lace
Is lovely, yes, and much more so
When viewed while in your warm embrace.

The breeze that whispers through the trees,
The freshly settled morning dew;
I thank my Lord for all of these,
But I thank God the most for you.

I really like it, wish I could turn a phrase like that. Get it on some kind of card (anniversary, birthday, mother's day)
