Poetry: Happy Marriage

the simplest things in the world are the best

like sunlight streaming through warm glass

and the sound of creaky old music over radio waves

a girl in an apron singing alone at her sink

an overgrown garden needing tending

but she is lost in reveries as she washes up

soapy hands and flicks of bubbles on her nose

and she sings the whole load of dishes through

and stacking is a joy when she stacks for love

and she loves him so merrily with nothing

but pure dreams and innocent smiles

never a sour look or unkind word crosses

her lips for he is the sun and moon and stars

and though he sails far away he loves her cooking

and he loves his wife and he will always return

home to her sunny kitchen and sweet songs

the simplest things in the world are the best

like true love and a happy marriage
