Poem by Alexander Lawrence Posey


To My Wife


Ive seen the beauty of the rose,
Ive heard the music of the bird,
And given voice to my delight;
Ive sought the shapes that come in dreams,
Ive reached my hands in eager quest,
To fold them empty to my breast;
While you, the whole of all Ive sought
The love, the beauty, and the dreams
Have stood, thro weal and woe, true at
My side, silent at my neglect.
