the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Praised be those who marry out of love
And care not about class or faith or race.
Such marriages may problematic prove.
Still, the grit is sweetened by the grace.
One lives with what one chooses, by and by,
Vividly becoming what one chose,
Embracing more at first than meets the eye,
Redeemed by love, as every lover knows.
