Song Of Espousal

The words came as gifts

from the land of proposal,

a voice of enchantment heard far, far, away

Wrapped in the promise

of a better tomorrow,

new bows made of letters untie and defray

Although undeserved but never unwanted,

in the vanishing darkness

feelings pledge with the dawn

As thoughts await marriage, the silence has ended,

a committed engagement

—betrothed in a song


(Rosemont Pennsylvania: March, 2021)
