Two women at the altar stand,
Forever joined by heart and hand;
Two wives, from this day forth, become:
Two weddings folded into one.
A single child two mothers makes
Of these two women, and awakes
A blessedness so pure in each:
A love, that shall to heaven reach.
Two women, from this world, depart,
Each safe within the other's heart
Until, as angels eased into
Heaven, they fall in love anew.
