Anniversary Years Poem & Traditional Gifts
The 1st is PAPER, on which you can write, The 2nd is COTTON, all crisp and white,
The 3rd is LEATHER, a bag or some gloves, The 4th is BOOKS, Lady Chatterley's loves!
The 5th is WOOD, a box full of dreams, The 6th is IRON, metal not steam
The 7th is WOOL, soft and warm, The 8th is BRONZE, metal in an elegant form
The 9th is COPPER and 10th is TIN, If you have got this far you are bound to win.
The 11th is STEEL, so shiny and bright, The 12th is SILK, so soft and so light,
The 13th is LACE, maybe a cloth for a tray, The 14th is IVORY, leave it for Jumbo its better that way!
The 15th is CRYSTAL, cut glass at its best, The 20th CHINA, cups, plates and the rest,
The 25th is SILVER - really swell, The 30th is PEARL - from an oyster's shell,
The 35th is CORAL, from under the sea, The 40th is RUBY, as red as red can be,
The 45th is SAPPHIRE - precious and blue, The 50th is GOLDEN - Congratulations to you!
The 55th is EMERALD - so green and so pure, The 60th DIAMOND - an achievement for sure.
The 65th BLUE SAPPHIRE and 70th PLATINUM, The last two which are reached by some
The 75th is DIAMOND AND GOLD, The 80th OAK our story is told...
