Wedding Poem

Wedding Poem

The feathers of the Ga Chi spread out black and white.
Beauty in contrasting colors that unite.
You are from the noble class, both divine and pure.
This means that you are obliged to help the poor.

No bond is as strong as husband is to wife.
Take your lady with you when you venture into night.
The earth is out of balance, Yang has smothered Yin.
Make your town a better place for children to live in.

We come to this world naked, ready to start play.
And naked you will be again on your wedding day.
Never lay down angry, make peace before you bed.
Surround your mate with what he needs to have a happy head.

Do not cause stress by working to make so many Won.
Why shorten life, when love was meant to last so long?
When you walk the streets, hold hands like you are teens.
Step carefully around corners, avoid moving machines.

Climb until you find the place where the water falls.
Watch wind move the leaves, hear birds’ mating calls.
Sit and laugh together when you are young, when you are old.
Ignite the fires that keep your mate both beautiful and bold.
