A Chapter by Debbie Barry

Written in 12th grade, a sonnet about marriage.




October 10, 1986

Bells ring out in wedding joy
As marriage binds a girl and boy
In holy love.
Bells ring out the funeral knell,
In sadness men death's story tell
The guiding dove.
Fortune brings foreverness
To people who are double blessed
By God above.
Love of men lasts ages long
'Til angels sing their final song
In Heaven's grove.
Stars and moon and sun revolve
And time doth every sadness solve.
