The Wedding is the Promise
A sweet song about marriage, sung as a solo, or as a duet in octaves.
Voicing: voice, piano
(from The Time of Singing Has Come)
duration: 3 minutes
The wedding is the promise
of two old ones inside the young ones,
so old they can barely
sit up by themselves.
Old woman, old man,
each wants someone all of their own
to be there
to sit in the other
– from Wedding, by Marisha Chamberlain
