Duke Loves Daisy

Capital letters for us
In the tree out back
Now about grown over
As I’m about to pack

Duke loves Daisy
Carved within a heart
Hard to make out now
Then it was our start

Sold the house
So big and alone
Without you now
The house only groans

A new couple now
With love in their hearts
Makes it feel right
Since it’s their start

    • I never had done this myself, but have seen it on different occasions; one was out in the woods, several hundred yards away from the path. Never did figure out that one.

  16. When “forever” doesn’t work out for some folks, it may for the next couple… certainly true of me and my former husband, who are both happily remarried and all friends.

    A tinge of sadness with a happy ending. And the tree will always mark the good times, you know? Thanks, Amy
