We’ve just celebrated our fiftieth wedding anniversary with close
family and lots of laughter. Great fun. And now for the next 50 …



we came hand-in-hand down the aisle
no idea that we would walk into campgrounds      
a city home, and then to an island farm
we didn’t plan ahead, except for kids
we just went where the Spirit led us
to the Colosseum, the Grand Canal
French vineyards, Portuguese castles

fifty years of adventures great and small
walking in Spain or down our driveway
in and out of doctors’ offices
to church, concert, and theatre
it’s been a journey of surprises

enhanced by each together smile
since we first walked down the aisle


my scans - after 18 112 coverTo Bethlehem: ‘This little book is delightful, full of … poems on this timeless subject. … the most fun is the little prose vignettes of the common people in the Christ-child story. The slave who looks after the wise men’s camels, or the overworked maid at the inn who has to fetch water for the birth, and many more. A lovely gift for the reader on your Christmas list!’ Rosalind Adams. Available from Amazon and Kindle.
