Marriage - Poem by Ina SchrodersZeeders

So quiet are you now,
and words have all been said.
We should have gone to bed,
but we don’t know just how.

Much talk there was, when we just met -
So quiet are you now,
as if we had a row.

The books have all been read;
We should have gone to bed
(remembering my vow) .
Not cold, but silence do I dread

“So, quiet are you now? ”
“My mind is numb, so that is how.”
“Was it something then I said? ”
We should have gone to bed…

You smile and kiss me on the head:
“So well I know you, long as we’ve been wed!
So quiet are you now.
We should have gone to bed! ”
