One Half and One Whole Sonnet, a Wedding Poem


One half and one whole sonnet.

“Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds

Or bends with the remover to remove:

Oh no; it is an ever-fixéd mark,

That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark . . .” (sonnet 116)


Born glad, she suckled, slept and let me rest

The gift of her, calming to our fam’ly.

Preparing us with pen and line, we signed.

In youth her travels set to Germany!

Robert, gazing west, honed skills, learned South Park fast

Simpsons, American, challenged his parents

Daring and smart; he’d win this lass

His tall agenda writ upon the wall.

Their paths crossed twice one night, in dark Berlin

Fate gave a glimpse how opposites attract;

Also true that Same gives bliss. In One

the joy of being themselves bears no lack.


From the second third of life, it’s now said:

Enjoy a long love, unto each other wed!
