Your Wedding Is a Morning and an Evening
|Your wedding is a morning and an evening:|
Just as the sun rises on your love,
Halfway round the world it will set
Upon the fields and faces you have known.
So life turns, and so our fond rejoicing
Has always the sweet pungency of time.
We come and go within a tidal longing
That sweeps our hearts beyond what we can be.
So beautiful a moment is forever!
We are in awe, and know not what it means.
Time parts around the rock of celebration
On which we stand to wish you joy and love.
