I loved the triangles that make up this image of the house opposite ours in St.Louis…..

And the following thoughts occurred to me, as well….

Triangles are a part of life. They can be shapes of beauty. But triangles can be a source of strife When they interfere with duty!

In geometry or architecture, All is good about triangles. But (forgive me for the lecture) In a marriage, they cause tangles!

A figure or a planned-out house May have three dimensions; But if caught in a triangle, a spouse Can have, to trust, no pretensions!

A child is the only accepted way There can be a marital triangle And even then, the spouses can say That the child is the smallest angle!

Three….a difficult number, and it makes me think.
