"CONQUERING LOVE Hinged between the family feud, our love is forged in spite dismay. as egos grapple rift of old, I know you have a heart of gold. Defiance all, my heart aflame, at statue ruins we meet again. This secret place, to us discreet, Like puffin doves, we pledge our love, For no one else but us can see, our unity under the willow tree, Believe not that of gossip tongue, Not chosen them, my soul mate be, I know you not, tradition seek. For sake of honour, custom speak. No rule or code or flogging me, For you my love, my fortress be. A miracle wish, this feud shall cease. My knight in armour set me free. I long the day in history, To spend our life in tranquillity. Submit to thee my dignity. A life in distant far away, lest family lead my life astray. ©Copyright 2013 M..A.
