(a lower case) Happy Anniversary by Raymond A. Foss
Not one of the big ones, the golden, the silver, not even tin
But one of the special days, we remember,
a date on the calendar
A lower case happy anniversary

Reminding us, of the day in your church,
Now three years and nine months ago
When we repeated our vows,
those cried out on that December morn’
Under a snowy sky

Sharing words of our love,
covenantal, deep, abiding
Before our family, our God, our church

Saying happy anniversary this morning,
Sitting, stilled, for a moment,
Sharing some toast at the table
Amid the bustle of our day
A smile on your face in reply
Stealing a bit of time
Sharing time together
On one of our
lower case anniversary days
