A Wall Or Bridge

They say a wife and husband, bit by bit,

Can rear between themselves a mighty wall,

So thick they cannot speak with ease through it,

Nor can they see across it, it stands so tall.

Its nearness frightens them, but each alone

Is powerless to tear its bulk away;

and each dejected wishes he had known

[Through] such a wall, some magic thing to say.

So let us build with master art, my dear,

A bridge of love between your life and mine,

A bridge of tenderness, and very near,

A bridge of understanding, strong and fine.

Till we have formed so many lovely ties,

There never will be room for walls to rise.
