Song 068 – First Anniversary

By February 27, 2018Songs

Song 063 – Willow Tree and Song 80 – The Road of Life refer to this song. This song was not used as music for a Psalm. I do not remember writing this song. I do remember singing it to myself fairly regularly, and thinking how the two streams symbolized the marriage of two individuals. I love the outdoors, and to see the clouds above. They fill my heart with love, and remind me of a dove off to woo his true love. This song was written a year after we got engaged, with times both low and high, and most importantly we found ourselves combined like the two streams we were walking by in my mind. It wasn’t that long after this song was written that we borrowed money from the Iron County School Credit Union, so we could go to Europe and explore (after all, we did not expect to ever travel that much after going to work for a big oil company). The First Anniversary is the “paper anniversary.” So when I opened up the box of material from 1974 in the garage, and saw these books from our trip to Europe, I felt like I needed to include a photo of them in remembrance of our First Anniversary. I do remember how we were taking turns reading “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” out loud to each other in those days. I remember we had tests and papers and we would put them aside to read about Frodo and his family. Even before the fantastic movies about these books, we were living in our own version of the imaginary world created by J. R. R. Tolkien. Maybe this type of fantasy is a basic need, in order for us to be able to cope with the mundane? I do look forward to when we can look back, remember everything, and put back together the pieces of our lives.
