Today we are obliged to be romantic

And think of yet another Valentine.

We know the rules and we are both pedantic:

Today’s the day we have to be romantic.

Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic.

You know I’m yours and I know you are mine.

And saying that has made me feel romantic,

My dearest love, my darling valentine.

Wendy Cope certainly wrote this beautiful piece when she was old. An artistic poem, it looks perfect for old couples who are still in love with each other. This is a beautiful excerpt, making us remember how love was in the olden days, and you can use these lines as anniversary wishes for wife!

2. Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe


But our love it was stronger by far than the love

Of those who were older than we—

Of many far wiser than we—

And neither the angels in Heaven above

Nor the demons down under the sea

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

Edgar Allan Poe, an American poet, wrote Annabel Lee in the loving memory of the woman he knew. According to some people, he had fallen in love with her when they were quite young. Such a beautiful excerpt to be dedicated as anniversary wishes for wife will be a great reminder of the romance in your relationship and will keep her happy for a long time!

Tomorrow, at dawn, the moment the countryside whitens,

I will leave. You see, I know that you await me.

I will go through the forest, I will go across the mountain.

I can no longer remain away from you.

Losing his family at a young age, Victor Hugo used to write a lot of poems about them and express his sadness and love through them. You can use this excerpt from Tomorrow, at Dawn to create some beautiful anniversary wishes for wife as these express unconditional longing!

Beauty and love are all my dream;

They change not with the changing day;

Love stays forever like a stream

That flows but never flows away;

And beauty is the bright sun-bow

That blossoms on the spray that showers

Where the loud water falls below,

Making a wind among the flowers.

Andrew Young has very cleverly portrayed the beauty of love without creating a hype about it. It has a natural flair to it and is quite a great excerpt to be read like a loving husband to your wife. Such anniversary wishes for wife are not easy to find and she’ll definitely think of you as a unique and creative soul after reading them!

She walks in beauty, like the night

Of cloudless climes and starry skies;

And all that’s best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes:

Thus mellow’d to that tender light

Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
