Our 17th wedding anniversary

This poem describes how I feel about David and his “quiet eyes” after 17 years of marriage:

Who Loves the Rain
– Frances Shaw

Who loves the rain
And loves his home,
And looks on life with quiet eyes,
Him will I follow through the storm;
And at his hearth-fire keep me warm,
Nor hell nor heaven shall that soul surprise,
Who loves his home,
And looks on life with quiet eyes.
