Love’s Rite

a poem by Ricia De Sa

Love meets love in the moonlight
They exchange words – lover’s rite
When the ritual is complete
They decide in another temple to meet
They vow a love so great
They make one another’s fate
These now see a different world
One which has struggles to hold
But they tarry to keep it warm
Each others nerves they do calm
Then when they are blessed with offspring
They realise the joy to each other they bring
They cherish their world, its full of joy
This union in every family it does employ.
