Wedding Blessings and Poems|
Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be the shelter for each other.
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be the warmth for the other.
Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before.
Go now to your dwelling to enter into the days of your life together.
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given three under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takes under the sun.
Sonnet 18 by Shakespeare
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
---- So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
---- So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
