He has given substance to the word, "astound"©02/14/2015 Carol Welch
as he, with merry secrecy prepared surprise,
assembled special details all around,
the items that would dearly please the eyes.
The furry figures she had made did greet,
and even condiments that she preferred,
to touch her heart and knock her off her feet,
as lights-on her still sleepy.vision stirred...
Would you not think that flowers are enough,
an expression of love on this special day?
But no. Into wee hours of nighttime stuff,
he prepared the toast to make the way.
The way to the heart in thoughtful, caring plan,
of quirky beauty, special to the spouse,
Would she not say all year, "What a man!"
viewing that scene in their little Florida house.
