Sonnet #25: Marital Differences

Let me not to the marriage of two minds
object: whatever differences ensue
provide the impetus for growth.  I find
this as I age to prove more true.

If you say neither, and I would neither say;
if you like sugar while I prefer grease and salt;
if you should find all politicians gray
when I see black and white and tons of fault --

There's truth on either side, and so we see
(having been forced to listen, each to each)
that every preference has veracity
or at least some rationale, something to teach.

And so to you I gladly pledge my life
and trust we each will learn from all this strife.
