The Written Works of Richart

Post by Richart » Sat Nov 21, 2020 10:23 pm

A Handfasting Covenant

My dear lady
do hear me now,
I'll never forsake thee
in sincerity I do vow.

I will cherish thee forever
till death do we part,
a love I do offer
a gift from the heart.

In purity and honor
I shall stand by your side,
like our hands tied together
shall this marriage abide.

And before this earthen altar
with a canopy of stars above,
our souls shall no longer be two
but become one in true love.

Then together we’ll be thankful
for that which is in store,
a Celtic marriage ordained
to live forevermore.

A Place Of Dreams, A Time For Love

Post by Richart » Sat Nov 28, 2020 11:13 am

A Place Of Dreams, A Time For Love

As evening comes
I close my eyes
then I drift away
to another place and time.

A place of dreams
a time for love
it’s where I’ll find you
and where you’re only mine.

Chorus:
A place of dreams
a time for love
a chance to meet
my only beloved.
To have and to hold
for my heart to you
is forever sold;
can you feel how pure this love is tonight?


On miles of clouds
we walk the sky
your hand in mine
as we bathe in the moonlight.

Two hearts in love
our bodies touch
the heavens shake
a new star is born tonight.

(Chorus)

As dawn arrives
I kiss my love
and vow again
I shall return once more.

To this place of dreams
a time for love
where hope never dies
upon eternal wings it forever soars.

(Chorus)

Thank you, poets. :)

Yes, Ray, Richart's "Celtic vows" could just as well be Cosmotheist vows.
