Nuggets of Wisdom.No.3


ON MARRIAGE

Marriage, now and ever is a sacred union
Of two souls bonded for communion
It binds man and woman as conjugal spouse
And on it, human society has its base

It should be an immaculate projection
Of the pair’s mutual trust and affection
Self giving love showers the grace
To solve all problems that eventually surface

Know, it is not always smooth sailing
As the storms of life oft sweep rocking
But if watered with tears and sacrifice
It yields a bumper crop of invaluable price

Marriage stoops to mere ceremony
When man and wife are not in harmony
When bonds break, it gives sheer agony
And even runs into bitter acrimony

When self is extinguished in matrimony
Sure, it becomes a beautiful symphony
So place it above mere romanticism
And never look upon it as an anachronism

    Truthful and profoundly stated. I am with you till Hell freezes over-but, here in America we are
    about to make same sex marriage legal. That is totally contrary to the natural order of things
    and I am saddened.. A very worthwhile write (Report) Reply

    So true Valsa, within marriage it is imperative to know where one person ends and the other begins, so their sacrifices made through choice are never fanned by bitter winds.
    A very special poem. Thank you :) (Report) Reply

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
