First Line: The knotted moment that untwists
Last Line: Kindness like death's have caught.
Subject(s): Love - Marital; Wedded Love; Marriage - Love


The knotted moment that untwists
Into the narrow laws of love,
Its ends are rolled round our four wrists
That once could stretch and rove.

See our confined fingers stray
O'er delicate fibres that recoil,
And blushing hints as cold as clay;
Love is tired after toil.

But hush! two twin moods meet in air;
Two spirits of one gendered thought.
Our chained hands loosened everywhere
Kindness like death's have caught.
