Marriage (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

I am writing the following poem for O.S.I. and the theme is marriage.

The Wayfaring Bachelor:

I am beholden to sunrise
With love so hot it burns my soul
The horizon is an island
For this bachelor to call his home
And sea goddesses left me shipwrecked
For my heart has wandered a year or two
And so you see, my dear
I cannot be married to you

Nice poetry tale, W.G. This happens. In love and in other realms of life.

She missed her chance to 'catch him' that is for sure.
