Birthday

To Ellen, Lady of Such Grace

To Ellen, lady of such grace
As well might grace a husband's life;
Whose gentle Quattrocento face
Conveys the wisdom of the wife.
As well might grace a husband's life,
She has a way with words, whose wit
Conveys the wisdom of the wife
Obliquely, bit by subtle bit.

She has a way with words, whose wit
Works patiently, as dawn will come
Obliquely, bit by subtle bit,
Till even fools can see the sun.

Works patiently, as dawn will come
To bring the dark sky's dreams to light,
Till even fools can see the sun
Restore the joys long lost to night.

To bring the dark sky's dreams to light,
Whose gentle Quattrocento face
Restores the joys long lost to night?
To Ellen: lady of such grace!
