Poem by Eugene Field
With Two Spoons for Two Spoons
How trifling shall these gifts appear Among the splendid many That loving friends now send to cheer Harvey and Ellen Jenney. And yet these baubles symbolize A certain fond relation That well beseems, as I surmise, This festive celebration. Sweet friends of mine, be spoons once more, And with your tender cooing Renew the keen delights of yore— The rapturous bliss of wooing. What though that silver in your hair Tells of the years aflying? 'T is yours to mock at Time and Care With love that is undying. In memory of this Day, dear friends, Accept the modest token From one who with the bauble sends A love that can't be spoken.
