Living the Vow

What most have forgotten, explained in a poem.

Poesy plus Polemics

bride “Bride and Groom” by Sali Swalla

commitment is easy on the voice

hardly straining the tongue

barely trembling the lips

but once spoken

ineluctably alters the arc of a life

from the sound of small words

come corporeal large obligations

within beating flesh of the heart

no light fancy attends

the articulate promise

but oh what sheer joy is in store

for its diligent keeping of faith
