Marriage

Written by: Anoucheka Gangabissoon

Once at the end of those days which made me a teen
My heart fluttered and danced with twirly beats, so keen!

In love I was and thought of the world as a flower
Blooming and blossoming in the hands of its gardener

Myself a mountain, a lush and lively one
Green with trees, home to the most beauteous swan

Pining to be united in a  marital bond
I took a leap, the forbidden one, for my vagabond!

A fair one he was, with a tender heart
To laugh and live, he needed my start

My leap took to me to the end of the abyss
Now for a united bond I care not, except when I sip my koumiss!
