"Mouths wandering each to each": A seriously passionate wedding reading

Passionate wedding reading
The Kiss by Gustav Klimt cross stitch by LoveAngelDecor

Upon first glance at this wedding reading, it seems lovely and sweet. But give it a second and it starts to sounds like some real live passion is being felt here. It's a supremely passionate wedding reading with just a tinge of "oh hell yeah, THIS is what I'm talking about."

Logic and rationality is all well and good, but this has some physicality and emotional heft to it. If you need a heady thrill in your wedding readings, this short and sweet one by Christopher Brennan is the one.

"If questioning would make us wise" by Christopher Brennan

If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
If all our tale were told in speech
No mouths would wander each to each.

Were spirits free from mortal mesh
And love not bound in hearts of flesh
No aching breasts would yearn to meet
And find their ecstasy complete.

For who is there that lives and knows
The secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need
To thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?

Then seek not, sweet, the "If" and "Why"
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.
