The Glass is Broken
The Wedding by Harold M. Schulweis
How at the height of joy
Is a glass broken.
How in the midst of song
Intrudes the noise of shattered glass
A moment past the sacred vows
Open now to fragmented lives
Bride and groom embracing time beyond
With the final promise to each other
Carried beyond the four posts of the wedding canopy
Into the blemished world.
