To Michelle, After a Hundred Days of Marriage

The more I love you, the more I see there is of you.
Whenever I look in your eyes, I glimpse ever-new frontiers
Opening up ahead, my Michelle, oh most endless of wives.

A hundred days isn't enough to begin to learn you, to love you.
I think I might start to fathom your depths in a hundred more years
But I do not think I would come to the end in a hundred more lives.
