Lumps of Clay

Take a lump of clay,
wet it, pat it.
Make a statue of you.
Make a statue of me.
Then shatter them,
clatter them.
Add some water,
and break them and mold them
into a statue of you
and into a statue of me.
Then in mine, are bits of you,
and in you, there are bits of me
Nothing shall ever keep us apart.
--Kuan Tao Sheng
(Sung Dynasty)

I love this poem. We had it read at our wedding!
