Romeo and Juliet
Sweet Rosaline had ruled his every thought
‘Til Romeo spied beauty at the ball;
By jeweled light in darkness was he caught
In nets of love that fate could not forestall.
He pledges love beneath a balcony
Where Juliet woos softly from above;
The friar’s plan would seal their destiny
When he united them in secret love.
But Romeo was lost to her in flight
To Mantua, where fate then laid its plan,
Played out to tragic end one fateful night
When potion’s magic wed instead their clans.
Their love was made to live beyond the grave;
Great was the mercy God in Heaven gave.
By Catalina Groszmann
