This poem is about my wife, Billy Gail Connell Coulbourn. We will have been married 50 years in August 2008. We have lived in Tarrytown, in Austin TX since 1960. The chemical symbol for gold is "Au."

There once be a...well, there still be,
a lady whose first name is Billy.
Not Billie, she’s Billy after her father,
Clifford Lewis
With the unlikely nickname of Bill
Or Billy.
Oh really, don’t bother
Or make a big fuss
Just get on the bus
And come to see us
So’s to save me the trouble
Of trying to bottle
Her qualities golden
Before August.
Now August is the golden month
For Gail and me to tarry,
And gold for every one of us,
From "August's" first two letters.
