ODE FOR SHIRLEY AND STUART
(On the occasion of their Marriage on Thursday 25 April 1996)

You  reach this day with love
and praise that all is well.
Two very special people who met
as if they should always have been
to each other what you vow today.
May the future nurture you
and may it bring life`s good health,
life`s good rapture and warmth
to your hearts and spirits.
For every droplet of sun and rain
there will always be some hope
where it is needed in your lives.
We all wish for you both this fragile
fragment of our existences.
