To My Wife, On Our Fifth Anniversary

You make each day august,

inspiring reverence

for little things

that comprise the vivid tapestry

of our life together.

For there is admiration

in leaning on the other

when life demands

leaning to be done.

You make each day august,

as you juggle with dignity

your various roles

the leading lady of the hearts of this home.

Each day is august

that your majestic smile

tells without words

of your love for us.

You made that August day

stately and grand,

with eyes bright and shining

as the sun above,

resplendent with love,

designed to be

full of simple nobility,

and uniquely ours.

You are august.
