I Thee Wed


(A Wedding Poem)

God made life of various kinds
and Adam looked all around
no one was there
with whom to share
no suitable helpmate was found

God put Adam into a deep sleep
a rib He surgically took
then God made Eve
for Adam to cleave
his heart filled with love at first look

and as he gazed upon his Eve
his eyes full and happy
bone of my bone
no more alone
Adam cheered

a man leaves his home to start his own
and that is why it is said
one flesh of the two
“I do”
the two are wed

the two
in love
united as one
as God has said it should be
this mystery He made
this sweet serenade
of God
and he
and she
