On The Brink Of Married Life You Wait With Wonder

On the brink of married life you wait with wonder:

The coming moment, mystic and mundane,

Brings law and love incongruously together

To form a bond both passionate and sane.

For now it has to be about the party:

Guests must be fed, clothes bought, proceedings planned;

But underneath there is abiding beauty,

Redeeming what the decencies demand.

Praised be the pillars on which we place our lives,

Standing more secure than else we might;

And praised be those in whom such sense survives,

Whose love becomes for all a source of light.

So do we celebrate, as the moment nears,A love that counts its happiness in years.

On Your Wedding Day, As You Trade Vows
On your wedding day, as you trade vows,No ordinary moment hurries by.You partake, as far as time allows,Of something more than time and Earth and sky:Unknowable, invisible, yet there;Resplendent to the heart if not the face;More than both of you, yet less than air;A transcendental act conferring grace.Reason might say, How can this be true?Return then to the heart, for this is love.In making vows, you make one out of two,A mystery beyond what words can prove.Go then as one flesh, one home, one heart:Each still a whole, yet also now a part.
