A Dedication to my Wife

“To whom I owe the leaping delight
That quickens my senses in our waking time
And the rhythm that governs the repose of our sleeping time,
the breathing in unison.

Of lovers whose bodies smell of each other
Who think the same thoughts without need of speech,
And babble the same speech without need of meaning…

No peevish winter wind shall chill
No sullen tropic sun shall wither
The roses in the rose-garden which is ours and ours only

But this dedication is for others to read:
These are private words addressed to you in public.”

― T.S. Eliot

      • You’re welcome! I know, I saw your answers, and man, they were amazing! I could tell that you put a lot of thought into them! Have a great day and God bless you!!


      • I had no roses in my garden, just petunias. The photos are not as great. I used a The HD feature. It’s seems rather harsh. But you get my drift. The late TS Eliot’s widow passed away this week. It was for her these and other poems were written. And the obituary said if it were for her, his work would have never gone noticed. God Bless her.
