  4. If Thou Must Love Me, Let It Be For Nought
    Poet: Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    If thou must love me, let it be for nought
    Except for love's sake only. Do not say,
    "I love her for her smile, her look, her way
    Of speaking gently, for a trick of thought
    That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
    A sense of pleasant ease on such a day";
    For these things in themselves, beloved, may
    Be changed, or change for thee: and love so wrought
    May be unwrought so. Neither, love, me for
    Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry:
    A creature might forget to weep, who bore
    Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby.
    But love me for love's sake, that evermore
    Thou mayst love on through love's eternity.

  5. This poem below depicts the amazing bond two people can have when they have each other's best interests at heart. Being able to see positivity in every moment of their lives together is an amazing accomplishment. It doesn't matter how the weather turns out or if the place we wanted to go cannot take us any longer as long as we love each other and find pleasure in every moment. May this be the relationship we all strive to have.

  6. We Two
    Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    We two make home of any place we go;
    We two find joy in any kind of weather;
    Or if the earth is clothed in bloom or snow,
    If summer days invite, or bleak winds blow,
    What matters it if we two are together?
    We two, we two, we make our world, our weather.
    We two make banquets of the plainest fare;

    In every cup we find the thrill of pleasure;
    We hide with wreaths the furrowed brow of care
    And win to smiles the set lips of despair.
    For us life always moves with lilting measure;
    We two, we two, we make our world, our pleasure.
    We two find youth renewed with every dawn;

    Each day holds something of an unknown glory.
    We waste no thought on grief or pleasure gone;
    Tricked out like hope, time leads us on and on,
    And thrums upon his harp new song or story.
    We two, we two, we find the paths of glory.
    We two make heaven here on this little earth;

    We do not need to wait for realms eternal.
    We know the use of tears, know sorrow's worth,
    And pain for us is always love's rebirth.
    Our paths lead closely by the paths supernal;
    We two, we two, we live in love eternal.

  7. On July 7, 1899, Mrs. C. K. Smith wrote this poem for her sixty-fourth wedding anniversary to her husband knowing very well that their journey together will soon be ending. Sixty-four years together is a long time to be married and knowing this she wrote this poem describing what she believes is next for them when this life is completed and the next begins.

  8. Our Sixty-Fourth Wedding Anniversary
    Poet: Mrs. C. K. Smith

    We are nearing the end of our journey,
    The mountains begin to look bright,
    Very soon we may enter the portals
    Where there will be no more night.

    From trials our life has not been exempt,
    But day always followed the night ;
    Have ever been blessed beyond our deserts,
    Our path undeservedly bright.

    More cause for thankfulness than repining,
    Have seen more of pleasure than pain,
    Every cloud has had its silver lining,
    And darkness changed to light again.

    "I have meat to eat that ye know not of,"
    Said Christ when his heart was full of love;
    We also may feed on food divine,
    Nor hunger, nor thirst, nor feel to repine.

    We get what we seek, if we seek aright,
    His yoke is easy and His burden light ;
    Brighter and brighter grows our pathway,
    Till now we are nearing the perfect day.

    To loved ones who meet with us here to-day
    May flowers spring up all along your pathway,
    That the evening of life your best may be,
    All ripe for a blissful eternity.

  9. A twentith wedding anniversary, china would be the traditional wedding gift. This poem was read at the party given by Mr. and Mrs. Hiram W. Robertson, on the twenteith anniversary of their marriage, December 16th, 1887. Composed the same evening after supper.

  10. The China Wedding
    Poet: Crocket McElroy

    There are fountains away in the north,
    From whence waters flow down to the sea,
    There's a heart in the bosom of man,
    From whence love courses warmly and free.

    There are diamonds that dazzle the eye,
    And rich gold that's a pleasure to see,
    But there's nothing so pleasing to man,
    As the love that flows warmly and free.

    There are men who have merits and wealth,
    And kind husbands they gladly would be,
    But Mary took a fancy to Hi,
    For his love flows so warmly and free.

    There are women of beauty and worth,
    Whose sweet smiles are a pleasure to see,
    But Mary was the choice of them all,
    For her love flows so warmly and free.

    They have kind friends who admire them both,
    And they're gathered this night just to see,
    How well they are enjoying this life,
    Where sweet love flows so warmly and free.
