The Taylors

West Kingsdown's knot was tied ten years ago

And he pronounced you man and wife for ever  -

Whom God had joined that none should put asunder

And you became 'The Taylors'.


So now you celebrate a decade's joys

Of children's love and steady growth which bursts

Into welcomes with Max leaping the wall to grandparents,

Arriving to spend a day with 'The Taylors'.


The close-knit neighbourhood of Chillingham Way know

There's understanding and acceptance at number six

By a couple who've grown in these over the years.

So they too thank God for 'The Taylors'.
