My Poem

We had to either write a love poem or talk about how we would write a love poem for lit class. I chose to write a poem!

The Steps of Marriage

Young Love is like fresh-fallen snow,
Unmarred by footprints of those we know.

Courtship is a time of testing,
Together we decide about our nesting.

Marriage is a bond,
In which to each other we must respond.

And when in death it comes to end,
I will have lost my greatest friend.
