Love At First Sight
[WRITTEN FOR VERNON AND THELMA'S
She caught him on the rebound
He vowed he'd never wed.
Since she lived too far for courting
He just married her instead.
They were wed in the depression
In those awful dust bowl days;
And though their love was strong and true,
Life was hard in many ways.
They wandered near and far afield
To keep the wolf from the door
But somehow the stork would always
find them to deliver one bundle more.
They had the perfect family-
Four girls and as many boys
And the home was filled with laughter,
Love and peace and many joys.
One by one the children left them
Until now it's tea for two
And after 50 golden years
Their love is still BRAND NEW!!
