A favorite for weddings, Robert Frost's "The Master Speed" celebrates togetherness, the union of one life to another. Written for his daughter's wedding, Frost explores the etymologies of "speed" (which once meant "prosperity or success in an undertaking") and how two lives dovetailing as one brings a vitality to living unlike a life spent in solitude. He also explores how love can defy all odds when he describes "the power of standing still" amidst potential chaos and change. 


The Master Speed / Robert Frost

o speed of wind or water rushing by
But you have speed far greater. You can climb
Back up a stream of radiance to the sky, 
And back through history up the stream of time. 
And you were given this swiftness, not for haste, 
Nor chiefly that you may go where you will, 
But in the rush of everything to waste,
That you may have the power of standing still — 
Off any still or moving thing you say. 
Two such as you with master speed
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar.
