Wedding Poem

Love knocks on the door
Taps on the window
Dances the floor
Love stampedes into
The valley of dreams
Lays siege to the tower
Which bursts at the seams
And rebuilds with each hour
Love shatters your armor
With arrows of gold
And nurtures the garden
For love to unfold
Its petals to drink from
The bright morning sun
It cannot be purchased
But often is won
Love curls up inside you
And builds you a nest
Of velvet and moonlight
In which you can rest.
