Holy Matrimony

Beneath the silence of the midnight moon
Beside red roses that flowered too soon
So soon that they’ll be gone long before June
A love is cast upon an ancient rune
And a god takes his queen into the dawn
Inside the garden where the night’s withdrawn
Beneath the arbour glowing in the morn
And to her divine love his heart is sworn
In the garden as all of time stood still
The ordinance of love they then fulfil
A kiss, the element of desire til
A goddess is seen as a perfect bride
Among the stars she shines her lunar pride
Until he returns to stand at her side.

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
