The Silent Fanfare


Let the trumpets sound, let’s bang the drum

Let’s call the world to hear

What wonder this ten years has been, and is,

Each minute, each hour, each day so dear.


Shall I share the splendid news

That age and love live well

There is no damping down

As far as I can tell


Dawn, my smiling start to everyday

The warmth of every night

She’s the laugh that wraps my soul

The touch that lights the light


How loudly shall I trumpet the glories so far untold?

Shall I keep it quiet, or really bang the drum?

No, I’ll keep it secret, there’s only me that knows

How beauty dawns each lovely day, – never growing old.
