Marriage is a turn towards innocence
As two vow what can only be naïve.
Romantic love, of course, comes more than once,
Returning with the fickleness of sense,
Interring what sweet semblance one would save.
Adults, however, know the story well,
Grasping the harsh truth of higher love,
Embracing what endures but through the will.
