Request to A Wife

Dear Wife, I need adoring looks
The Kind I read about in books
I want esteem, I want affection
Please, darling, beam in my direction

Don't, dearest, frown and squint your eyes
Don't cut me down to proper size
Oh, do not fear and do not doubt me.
I want to hear the good about me

So, if you'd be in married clover,
Make over me.
Don't make me over

 -Richard Armour
