I'm consumed this week in finding a suitable (and yet, shall we say, practical) way to honor a grand achievement: my parents' upcoming fiftieth anniversary. In my search for a related poem, just as I was becoming frustrated, I found this.
The notes say that it was composed in response to the fiftieth anniversary of the Lego patent, in 2008. I suppose I could wish that the Lego anniversary coincided exactly with my parents' anniversary, but goodness! Isn't it pleasing when things fit together so variably, so neatly, so interlockingly coupled?
