Of all the years that we have been together,
there cannot be a single one in doubt,
… but, one thing is sure, the one we’re in
right now, is best of all; my life bears out:
there is a truth, by centuries well worn,
that every man a woman will reform.

Very good poem! That’s what I’ve heard about relationships and it’s good people can change and adapt to suit love and their situation.
Thank you Ruth, it’s pleasing that you’ve taken the time to comment. I’m interested to know how you interpreted the last line ;-).
