Wedding Vows to My Muse
My darling Muse,
to nurture you through the bread of the Word
and wine of the Spirit.
to strengthen you by reading works of other poets
and poetry how-to books (including doing the exercises)
and continuing to write a poem a day.
I promise to
make you happy
by increasing my skills
in the use of metaphor, details, meter and rhyme.
to strengthen our social life as a couple
by participating on poetry blogs and challenges
and by helping and encouraging friends through poetry.
to not hold you back,
by publishing poetry books and
submitting poems to magazines and journals.
This I promise, for better or worse, in 2013.
