their marriage: phase 2


they sleep early
and wake up early

the splendor of odor
the magic of skin all gone

back to back with time
they have nothing to share

except their promise
to complete the journey of marriage

sailing on mutual affections of pity
and sympathy less the excitement

silence holding on to silence
love shrinking to its essence

understanding digs deeper
to souls intertwined longing

for that final resting place
the same God as their witness.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
