Wedding Songs

     'The way of a man with a maid'                                                      
                                                       -Proverbs 30:19


On the first morning of our marriage,
You gave me raspberries in a white bowl.
Later we stood barefoot on sand
And let white sea foam wash about our ankles.


We lay down among flowers,
The grass sweet and wet,
Your dress wet.
Horses came near under blue sky,
Treading down the sweet grass,
And your dress was yellow among the flowers.


The whiteness of foam,
The smell of morning rain;
And as we walked on the sand,
My fingertips touched your sleeve.


I come with gifts of milk and wine,
Silver shoes, and a bough of cherries,
And enter your garden of roses.
