You are…

“As unto the bow the cord is,
So unto the man is woman;
Though she bends him, she obeys him,
Though she draws him, yet she follows;
Useless each without the other!”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 – 1882), U.S. poet.

YOU ARE …
(for Nitz,
on Our Wedding Day,
September 8, 1982)

as moon and stars

ornament the firmament
you are
petals to sepals.

as earth and water
complement as elements
you are
butter to bread.

as desert and dunes
weather the weather
you are
furnace to fire.

as cloud and rain
together ever
you are
you to me.

– between
bride and groom
is Altar.

(c) 1982 Chito L. Aguilar
