Marble Tiger

Verse

At the gates of his castle the Marble stands tall,
New English by birth, but a tiger to all.

Diamond's Story

The name Marble Tiger brings together two elements. Marble, because I had a surprise marriage proposal on the grounds of the Marble House in Newport, Rhode Island. My then boyfriend now husband and I were taking a belated Valentine’s Day trip up to Newport for the weekend. He had been acting very strange and I was worried he was going to break up with me. He wanted to go on a tour of the Marble House which was out of character as well. He is not that kind of guy usually, but I thought “Great!” At the end of the tour the guide advised that for those of us who wanted to brave the frigid temperatures there was a beautiful garden along the ocean cliffs that we could go enjoy. My boyfriend said he wanted to go out there, which also was out of character. We walked back to the ocean cliff by the garden and—guess what! He pulls out a ring and asks me to marry him. I was in total shock, but even so I managed to blurt out the magic word. Yes! 

Why the tiger? Well, I just love tigers so why not a Marble Tiger?
