Like a Horse With a Carriage

Love goes with marriage Like a horse with a carriage. . . but what of the horse? The horse may lead the carriage, but often stumbles or dies. What of the carriage? It often falls apart or gets stuck in a rut. But how beautiful the horse and the carriage that endure! For SandyIvy Davis's Tanka - Love & Marriage Tanka Poetry Contest

    I love the analogy here. There are so many nuances to consider. I will be pondering on this poem for some time to come. What a great write.

    A deceased man named Frank who hailed from Hoboken, NJ sang about love and marriage going together like a horse and carriage. Your double tanka is a good write as usual Andrea.

    A marriage message indeed. A constant work in progress. But is there a better job? Luv n hugs to you. Michael

    Ah! Andrea Excellent work here. Great parallels drawn between a horse-cart and marriage. Truly its beauty lies in togetherness. A top winner this dear.

    Hey Andrea, you're right about the saying. I've just heard it in a Frank Sinatra song. No, I'd never heard the saying before. In my country it's easier to meet a lion than a horse(I've only seen a horse once in passing). Thanks for the heads up. I love this one!

    I suppose the inner message is, marriage that endures is beautiful. I suppose that's possible but I'm sure no judge! :) Love Lizzie

    Like the old song, Love and Marriage. Is that the title? I can't remember. After all, the song was popular around the mid 40s. Your poem, however, is much better than that old song. The last two lines are priceless. Love, daver
