Marriage is an antidote for time
As two stop time by swearing not to change,
Resisting what makes every moment strange,
Removing what makes all alone and blind.
In time, of course, the lovers will succumb
As everything must change, including love,
Granting but the grace that in them moved,
Eternal, though in time an end must come.
