Eternally Together

~ Fate brought them together, at the blush of her youth A devout, gifted rosebud, of wit, charm, and intelligence The theologian charmed her, and gave her bold proof of a love and a challenge, defying her innocence... But, scandal entwined them, by strict standards and circumstance For she,...was a prized rose,....and he was the bee Love such as theirs, would be riddled with thorns Such passion, devotion, against all propriety She was torn from his arms, when a baby was born, And the babe, too, was taken, by the winds of the storm Eternally together, they were finally united They now rest in a garden, together a pair ... For nine hundred years, this love unrequited Is marked on a gravestone, where lovers shed tears Love meant to be, will not deny what lies here abelard and heloise: For Nette's Contest By Carrie Richards 5/23/12
