For all still-married people. Lald and Perce especially

ScaffoldingScaffolding       Seamus Heaney

Masons, when they start upon a building,

Are careful to test out the scaffolding;

 

Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,

Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.

 

And yet all this comes down when the job’s done

Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.

 

So, if, my dear there sometimes seems to be

Old bridges breaking between you and me

 

Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall

Confident that we have built our wall.
