more marvels

more marvels than we wonder at in time
require durations longer than a life
a sense of humour sharper than a knife
and hope that lasts much longer at its prime
so that we do not call each love a crime
mistake the normal signs of growth for strife
and know that all with marks of grief are rife
we chain them up within the bars of rhyme
desires are laid out openly and plain
for those who want to see just how we make
the answer suffice for the world we've got
much will depend on just how much we gain
not on the things that others have to take
on what we do and just what you cannot
