Sonnet: In Married-Life
Man, give your body to your wife and love
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Her wholeheartedly whenever you can;
Woman, you give yourself to him and prove
The world of yours is him- the only man!
Both Man, Woman when bonded by three knots!
Just give you minds to each other all life;
For, two is better than one on earth-plots
And in combating problems- grief and strife.
O spouse, then give your soul, all pure to God,
The Master of your destiny always;
Remember that Heaven’s your great reward,
After a good tenure on earthly base.
Hence, love your spouse wholly for Heaven’s sake’s,
For, sacred is the nuptial ties God makes.
