This English sonnet was written on 2/24/96 as a wedding present for two of my medieval re-enactment friends, under the oen name of Catherine du FaySufficient wealth can surely make a bed Luxurious for any wild desire. A satin cushion sooth the restless head, And silken sheets ignite the hidden fire. Rare herbs that fill the air with fragrant scents, Fine carvings that record heroic deeds, Rare woods designed to stimulate the sense, Can make a bed remarkable indeed. Yet joy can make a wretched hovel fair Beyond the reach of any wealth, it’s true, And love can bring a sense of rapture there Beyond the lengths that any purse can do; And so, if prayers are heard by God, I pray That joy and love be made th bed this day.
