Alternate Author Name(s): Marsh, Wendy
Subject(s): Laughter; Love; Romeo & Juliet


Because the thing was finished in a tomb
And since we were ridiculously young,
Our names have come to spell impending doom,
Our tale has been retold in every tongue.
And all of you whose hearts were warm and kind
Have grieved and wept for us down through the years;
It sometimes made me smile -- I did not mind --
Indeed, I have been grateful for your tears.

But have you quite forgotten how that night
The moon shone on his face while I above
Leaned nearer him? Can't you recall its light?
Don't you remember how we pledged our love?
Oh, it was quickly ended, our brief day,
Yet it was filled with laughter. We were gay!
