Heart, Wedding, Marriage, Hands, Romantic, Marry


To have and to hold

To otherwise keep

It is a promise

Of commitment deep


A promise eternal

Forever and a day

Forsaking all others

Never to stray


Simple words full of meaning

Full of hope – bright

On each other leaning

Come whatever might



d’Verse Quadrille #91 – Keep

“This week I’d like you to take any meaning, form or compound of the word keep, and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the prompt word.”
