In the country
You’re in the water set aglow
Every fine thing
See the candle burning low

All the mornings
Every arc across the sky
All the evenings
All the ages in your eye

Hold me to the light
And tell me darling
Things will be alright
And tell me darling
Anything you want to

All the wheels are turning
All our pictures getting old
All the honest moments
All the changes we behold

Turn me to the light
And tell me darling
Things will be alright
And tell me darling
Anything you want to

Notes
Saturday was our fifth wedding anniversary! We are on a well deserved getaway together in Maine to replicate our mini-moon five years ago. I have written before of the ways that partnership can be underscored by the current moment. Covid-19 brought us closer together, and we’re fortunate for that. I know we didn’t envision 2020 clearly when we spoke our vows. We never guessed that one day soon the world would be tested and we would have rely on each other in precisely this way. As we age into the next phase of our partnership, I’m grateful to have somebody who will tell me that things are going to be okay. I’m also also thankful to have somebody to say it to.
