Old oak,

  Varnish and chrome,

      Stability;

      Longitude.

Why buy

    New Furniture

    for Anniversary?

Shouldn’t it just

        be solid

        Antique?

What better

        to recall

a time when

“Things”, like

            relationships,

were better made.

Not angry

        and fashionable

          like the mob,

But the

    Old Oak Tree;

    Reminding Me

That patience

              and time spent cherishing

              the things

We already have

           is what make

    Great these

Long-lasting

  Moments
