Writing Samples - Non gender-specific auf ruf
As you have agreed to enter into marriage with the one whom you love, may you commit to each other with joy and in hope. May there be tenderness between you; gentleness and understanding; and a readiness to forgive each other’s differences. May you help and support each other. And, if you raise children, may a new generation grow in health; and in beauty of spirit in a home full of love.
[The following I adapted from Chapter 2 of the Song of Songs]
Like a lily in a field of thistles, Such is my beloved among others
And my beloved among the young men is a branching apricot tree in the wood.
In that shade I have often lingered, tasting the fruit.
Oh feed me with your love. Your left hand beneath my head, your right hand embracing me.
As he calls to me: Hurry my love, my friend, and come away!
My dove in the hidden places of the rock, in the secret places of the cliff, Let me hear your voice! Let me see your handsome face! For you sing a delicious song, and your presence is lovely.
My beloved is mine and I am his. He feasts in a field of lilies. Before the dawn comes and the shadows flee away, come to me, my beloved, and be like a gazelle or a young stag on the mountains of spices.
How fine you are, my lover, My perfect one.
