Vow - Poem by Katusiime Jeresi

The day
I say
'I do',
will be a summer afternoon
your smile will compel this doom
to step aside as you skillfully weave me into your loom.
The day
I say
'I do',
will see a stubborn sheep enter your courts
the sheep you adore to be exact
which bleats with joy and at your touch delights.
The day
I say
'I do'
will see your name by my Mrs
and lone gents, will always see me fenced
just as wandering skirts will have you off their 'might be' racks.

In the quiet of the night, with the moon glaring
nocturnal ants sounding our wedding march
the priest, the cold
then you,
then me,
I would love to say 'I do'
but
you say the world must witness, the bloom of what you feel,
for a mere sheep
the day,
I say
I do.
