In spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, but spring’s elixir is so powerful that even an old man’s fancy turns to thoughts of love and romance.
President Joe Biden was photographed picking a dandelion for first lady Jill Biden, proof that love still blooms in the septuagenarian’s heart.
While the power couple walked across the Ellipse to board Marine One, the lover-in-chief stopped to puck the flower from the ground and hand it to his wife of four decades.
Middle-class Joe is in reality a millionaire and he can afford to shower his beloved spouse with diamond rings and gold earrings, but that dandelion was more precious than silver or gold in her eyes.
When they reached the helicopter, he placed his hand on her lower back, guiding her up the steps. Joe has lost a step or two and he has trouble climbing stairs, but his thoughts were focused on making sure that the love of his life made it up the ramp safely.
What a lovely vignette of their endless love, may the spring time of their love be eternal.
