Before there was an Adam,
Before there was an Eve,
God looked down into the vastness
"What a waste, I do believe."
Then He created the sun, stars and moon,
Saturn, Mars and Uranus too.
The Universe spread forth it's girth
And He created one more, Earth.
He worked His wonders creating,
A heaven here on Earth,
Filled the skies with soft white clouds,
And the lilting songs of the birds.
God created Adam to share this wealth,
But soon His heart did grieve,
When He noticed how lonesome Adam was
He then created Eve.
Through the years God blessed this species,
With Faith they did prevail,
He gave them Hope to carry on
And Love to show they care.
Once more God blessed a man
With a woman who'd next to him stand,
The day Marietta took Orville's hand,
God smiled down and said, "Amen."
This poem was written to celebrate Orville and Marietta
Gallino's last wedding anniversary. Orville was a noted
bull rider and bull fighter from the Sand Hills of Nebraska.
He was very involved with High School Rodeo as well as a rancher.
He died of a rare disease and we miss him very much.
