The Ruby Years

It may just seem like yesterday
When Jean was wooed by John,
But really, all those yesteryears
Have inched their way along.

We see a young petite Miss Hale
In finery so grand,
At 'Alexandra', stand by John
And pledge to take his hand.

To love and cherish, rich or poor,
In health and sickness too
Relying on their Lord above
To help them see it through.

This love that started way back then
Is still strong, it appears,
This Hale-Montgomery union has
Now reached its Ruby years.
