Sisters **Scrap That Poetry and Practical Scrappers***

I totally Love this weeks Poem at Scrap that Poetry. I knew the second I read the poem, I wanted to scrap this picture, from Christmas 2008, I knew the right time would come for me to scrap it. This also works for this weeks challenge at Practical Scrapper
The Journaling reads:
We are the knot that ties our families together. We may not always see eye to eye, but we always stand side by side. You are my best friend and confidante. We love our girl time. I only hope that Monica and Natalie would share the same knot.

Here is the poem.
Freedom and Love by Thomas Campbell

How delicious is the winning
Of a kiss at love's beginning,
When two mutual hearts are sighing
For the knot there's no untying!
Yet remember, 'Midst our wooing,
Love has bliss, but Love has ruing;
Other smiles may make you fickle,
Tears for other charms may trickle.
Love he comes, and Love he tarries,
Just as fate or fancy carries;
Longest stays, when sorest chidden;
Laughs and flies, when press'd and bidden.
Bind the sea to slumber stilly,
Bind its odour to the lily,
Bind the aspen ne'er to quiver,
Then bind Love to last for ever.
Love's a fire that needs renewal
Of fresh beauty for its fuel:
Love's wing moults when caged and captured,
Only free, he soars enraptured.
Can you keep the bee from ranging
Or the ringdove's neck from changing?
No! nor fetter'd Love from dying
In the knot there's no untying.
