Twenty Poems to Bless Your Marriage: And One to Save It

Authors: Housden, Roger

Publisher: Shambhala

ISBN: 9780834828179

Classification: Fiction

Synopsis: This book is a companion in poetry and prose along the journey of love and marriage. It is a song of praise to the love between two people, and to the commitment to that love demonstrated in marriage.


As it evolves over time, marriage, like life, passes through seasons and stages, peaks and valleys. The book is organized by these stages of marriage, from the wedding day to the last days. Each section begins with an essay that reflects on the stage, followed by four poems that illuminate the experiences of marriage in ways that we can appreciate and understand, but may find difficult to express.


Poems reach us in ways that surpass other forms of expression, especially when the subject concerns matters of the heart. The prose and poetry here provide not only inspiration for the journey, but also support and wisdom.
