Poetic Ketubah

September 26, 2018

It's interesting how different works of art can reflect each other, sometimes without even knowing it.  I recently came across a poem that so perfectly complimented the "Enchanted Forrest" and "Rooted Together" ketubah designs, that I had to share it.  Take a look at the brief excerpt below, from the poem Together by Jo Lynne Woodand see which ketubah design you think it relates to more:

 

 Two trees near to each other stood

When they were young and life was new.

Their limbs reach out and their branches entwine

And thus together they grew.

Their roots spread out down under the ground

Joining one with the other,

So, from the top in the sky to the heart

In the earth-the two were joined together.

Thru days when the sun was bright and warm

And the winds were temperamental

When a laughing breeze rustled the leave,

Or when the rain was soft and gentle.

Thru days when the clouds were dark and gray

And cold and fierce the weather

The two stood firm and faced the storms

Because they stood together.
