    Two friends asked me to write a poem for their upcomming wedding, this poem is the result.

    A Wedding Poem

    Distant branches in tangerine sky

    Candyfloss vapours trail up high.

    Children squeal in delighted glee

    To see your love, your entity,

    Angels sigh to sound of dove

    Two people are wed in matrimonial love.

    Friends stand by from close and afar

    To witness your seal a very high bar;


    There will be winters of cold and grey

    Where the nights are dark, and there is no day.

    Stand firm and strong in times of sadness

    Smile and laugh in times of gladness.

    Plant your feet in the meringue-capped snow

    Above, stars wink in deepest indigo.

    For your heads give shoulder to one another

    Whisper your love to your lover.


    At times it will be like tree without leaf

    Keep your love - keep your belief.

    The buds will always bloom again

    For they always need sun and rain.

    Rejoice in time of summer’s rays

    Long and balmy warming days;

    When flower and fly dance a serenade

    Fishing by lake in mighty oak shade.


    Don’t forget to hold each other’s hand

    Carve ‘I love you’ in sea-swept sand.

    And now two become one for life together

    All around know it’s for the better.

    Enjoy the day, family, friends and their love

    For your marriage is sanctified from angels above.

    I wish it had been that way for me. A wonderful portrayal of love and expressions of the couple, along with a gentle warning to never let it slip away. Good one, just hit a sad spot with me. Write on....

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
