Two Royal Weddings and a Poem

Photo By Mario Testino

April 29th is a GOOD DAY for a wedding. How do I know? Well, truth be told, 11 years to the day, I had my own fairytale.

In honor of weddings past and present, I have chosen a special poem to end our nod to National Poetry Month. I'll also be wearing my tiara all day, as any glamour gal would do for such an occasion.



Love one another, but make not a bond of love
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping;
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together yet not too near together;
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

By Khalil Gibran (aka Kahlil Jubran)

Goodbye April - This completes our homage to National Poetry Month!
