~~~ Sacred Knot ~~~

Updated on September 11, 2014

~ Sacred Knot ~


Marriage vows are filled with beauty,

Juxtaposing love and duty;

Ups and downs in wealth and honour;

Standing firm without a dollar.


Faithlessness it can't abide,

It's jealousy could never hide;

Virgin white adorns the bride,

With handsome swain about her side.


Organ chimes, dad gives away,

As God forms their new life today;

Rings exchanged, two lover's kiss,

True witness of their future bliss.


Wedding bells, confetti thrown,

To garnish love's new temple throne;

Banquet spreads siege tiered cake,

Surround new happy, couple's wake.


Best friends rise then speak their piece,

With joyful words that bring release;

Gifts and chauffeured drives await,

To take them to their private gate.


Belle's diamond band shall never rust,

Whilst tears are bound by 'ternal trust.

 

THE END

A Troparion Canticle.


" Thine 'ternal words carved thee new heart,

Yet ne'er, razed chisel and maul;

By serpent lithe, nor reaper's scythe,

Didst excess pieces fall.

Nay, enemy fire nor Eve's desire,

Dared smelt away thowts' dross;

'Twas spiritual brands, empyreal hands,

Which shaped it via Thy cross."

      Certainly glad that you enjoyed that one MsDora and always value the time you spend here.

      By the way, congratulations on your Hub award for ' Most Beautiful Hub - Other Words of Love; How They Add Meaning '; I'll raise a glass to you!

      Romeos, I love, love, love "Sacred Knot." "Their private gate"--that's precious. Of course, the Jesus canticle is also very special. You worked on my emotions today and I enjoyed every minute of it.

      It's always good to have you drop by Word; love everything about the Chicago music scene and looking forward to checking out that groove A.S.A.P. - my sound card driver has decided to go on the fritz so will plug in and kick back when technology and I become bosom buddies again.

      Thanks a million for your great commentary - really encouraging.

      Take it easy man, and sending good vibes to you and your main squeeze.

      Thank you kindly for such appreciation Faith.

      Well, it's a twin chaplet for the Queen of the South then! Really pleased for you that you have been honoured twice here now in such a fashion - well done indeed! ( Did leave a generic congratulatory message on the thread to everyone but may have been missed with so many things going on here recently ).

      Enjoy a lovely weekend dear heart, and best wishes to you and your family.

      Hey Romeo, wonderful rhythm and rhymes in both poems with excellent messages. Btw, there's a song about a Romeo. I always thought it was a nice tune. Check it out:

      Take care.

      Truly divine, brilliant and lovely poetry here, dear Romeos! I love reading your work before I turn in for the night, as it is always such a delight and pleasure to read. I know I will read this one several times and see something new I love about these poems. "Sacred Knot" is an excellent title here.

      Wonderful imagery and perfect here.

      Voted up ++++ and away

      Blessings always

      Well, it's just as well you don't have to rely on HP for your wardrobe or it'd be a topless morning brew for you :)

      It's free advertising for them so it would make sound business sense to bestow one to all accolade recipients....don't hold your breath for a robe, sceptre and diadem then :)

      Hmm Romeo's...they only offered me a mug. Maybe the t shirts are only for the "best hubs" or best overall Hubber??

      Cheers Jodah;

      I hope HP towers send you a T-shirt that fits and doesn't reek of B.O :)

      All the Best;

      Two beautiful poems R.Q. A pleasure to read, and love the photo of the tiny mustard seed in the jar and the one of the huge tree that it comes from. One of the great parables.
