Marriage - Poem by Yvonne Rautenbach


He dropped his shield that gentle knight
and bared a soulful breast
and there she laid her weapons and her head
And he with crystals for his eyes
and diamonds in his smile
Became as fluid as her blood
And slicker than her guile
Passively she melted and like a lamb obeyed
Then was fear a tethered beast
But love so sharp a blade
that in the rock they carved their names
While peace not war was crowned
Hung like trophies on a spear
But making not a sound
