‘’Tis Time to Get Married! ’


‘’Tis time for marriage, daughter dear, ’
Her father tells her lovingly;
‘You cannot have your parents near,
For aging turns all elderly.’

‘’Tis time you chose a life-partner,
And have a family of your own;
We love to see our grand-children
Come eat, and play and have great fun.’

‘Your parents are now getting old;
You cannot stay with them life-long;
Living alone is for the bold;
In solitude, most things go wrong.’

‘Matrimony’s a sacrament –
A vow to share your joys and woes,
With your one spouse and have a home,
Where love, peace, harmony prevail.’

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
