Eternal Vows

Golden sky

A gilded zephyr brings aliferous dreams;
A gilded prayer suffuses an empyrean sky;
A gilded promise holds two loving hearts,
As the moon witnesses these eternal vows.
The trees’ susurrus gives our wedding song;
Honeycomb sweetens our wedding cake;
Velvety blossoms blanket our wedding bed,
As the moon witnesses these eternal vows.
