A poem shared by Harper12 with me.
"There is nothing held so dear
as love if only it be hard to win.
The rose in yonder hedge appears to outdo
our garden buds that bloom within.
But since the hand
may pluck them everyday unmarked
they bud, bloom, drop and drift away."

She is also engaged to be married. Hooray!
