The Balance - a 20-line poem with an ebb-and-flow rhythm and a closing refrain
In a time when selfishness was rife, We promised to be friends for life.
Many, many years ago, when Teddy was much younger than today...
But he left me standing there alone, for he knows not how to wait.
Seldom have I seen a finer portrait of married love.
She knows how to make him a happy man.
She holds the world in her hands, but does she have any idea how rich she is?
An original country song...
So long We waited for This day to come.
The challenge of the Double Five is to adequately express the portrait of a loved one in only 10 short lines of verse.
