When times do challenge, you can keep your wits;
your sanguine mind deliberates fair choice;
you navigate to where fair action sits
and to strong action you bring strongest voice.
Adversity calls forth from you your strength
to deal with each new challenge step by step;
with perseverance measured by its length,
and true resolve, stronger than Castle Knepp.
Let those who’d hinder you rethink their will,
else to your wrath they’ll find they’re bound to fall.
Your chosen purpose you will soon fulfil
and hold all other people in its thrall.
With fervent love I travel by your side,
in rapture sweet to have you for my bride.
