Certificate of Love

For mental effort, thought of honest kind,
To you I give Certificate Of Mind;
For competence in hard work’s daily chores
I give Certificate Of Deeds; it’s yours.
For laughings of a soul that is still straight
I give you Joy-Of-Life Certificate;
For loving me, the poet who loves you,
I give this lasting Kiss Certificate,
And for the books you so caringly do write,
And for my poems you so lovingly recite,
And for the love you increasingly do give,
And for my life, which happy now, I live—
For all these singing things, around, above,
I wreathe you with Certificate Of Love.
