Arranged Marriage


A unique social relation
followed from generation
built on respect and trust
which is now declining fast
unite two persons as strangers
bringing in wedlock together.
Thus commence a newly happy life
In their hearts with a burning pride
This old custom will win for ever
Trustless love is our modern fever.

    It is hard to believe there are still arranged marriages in this world today. In the 1800's, my Grandparents had an arranged marriage - they were from Mierto, Sicily. It's hard to believe that an arranged marriage would actually work out. It seems though that love slowly grows into acknowledgement, nurturing and growing seeds of love and caring until it blossoms beautifully into a lovely marriage garden! ! A great poem on a rarely heard of subject in these modern times. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
