Was scheduled for two-fifteen,
Got started ’round quarter to three…
She nearly clobbered me just before–
My “late” question considered mean.
She was finalizing the fit
Of bridesmaids gowns and such…
Had a long round trip,
At the time I wasn’t worth much!
Yet the thing went through,
Mostly without a hitch…
My youngest nephew’s howl
Gave funny bones a twitch.
Twenty-seven years—June third–
It doesn’t feel like yesterday
But has been an enriching time!
(Dedicated to my wife of 27 years, Diana M. Caswell)
