The Sacred and the Profane

Saturday at the Washington State Capitol in Olympia, all eyes were on the profane efforts of some to strip others of civil equality.  Yet a few paces away in the Capitol garden, a sacred event was occurring.  Two women were sharing declarations of love for one another in a commitment ceremony.  The love of two people for one another is the phoenix that will eternally rise.  There is no stopping it.  Purveyors of discrimination must realize that they can never satisfy themselves because they can never stop the ever-flowing wellspring of love.  Our love is here to stay.

Our Love Is Here To Stay

By George and Ira Gershwin

The more I read the papers

The less I comprehend

The world with all its capers

And how it all will end.

Nothing seems to be lasting.

But that isn’t our affair;

We’ve got something permanent,

I mean in the way we care.

It’s very clear

Our love is here to stay;

Not for a year

But ever and a day.

The radio and the telephone and the movies that we know

May just be passing fancies,

And in time may go.

But, oh my dear,

Our love is here to stay;

Together we’re going a long, long way.

In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble,

They’re only made of clay,

But our love is here to stay.
