"NOT ONLY THE MOON BUT THE STARS TOO"
Not only the moon but the stars too,
these hand-fasting rings.
The first a promise pulled from the sky
and tied to my hand like a balloon—
lovelorn ghost, luminous and round.
The second a circle
of workaday vows plucked
from a universe of needs
for the ordinary orbit of years.
From The Crow's Vow (2010) by Susan Briscoe.
