PROPOSAL
by Bayard Taylor

The violet loves a sunny bank,
The cowslip loves the lea,
The scarlet creeper loves the elm;
But I love -- thee.

The sunshine kisses mount and vale,
The stars, they kiss the sea,
The westwinds kiss the clover bloom
But I kiss -- thee.

The oriole weds his mottled mate,
The lily's bride o' the bee;
Heaven's marriage ring is round the earth --
Shall I wed thee?


~ Wedding Poetry ~


SONG
 by C. Day Lewis

Come, live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
Of peace and plenty, bed and board,
That chance employment may afford.

I'll handle dainties on the docks
And thou shalt read of summer frocks:
At evening by the sour canals
We'll hope to hear some madrigals.

Care on thy maiden brow shall put
A wreath of wrinkles, and thy foot
Be shod with pain: not silken dress
But toil shall tire thy loveliness.

Hunger shall make thy modest zone
And cheat fond death of all but bone --
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.

THE NEWLY WEDDED
by Winthrop Mackworth Praed

Now the rite is duly done,
Now the word is spoken,
And the spell has made us one
Which may ne'er be broken:
Rest we, dearest, in our home,
Roam we o'er the heater,
We shall rest, and we shall roam,
Shall we not? together.

From this hour the summer rose
Sweeter breathes to charm us;
From this hour the winter snows
Lighter fall to harm us:
Fair or foul -- on land or sea --
Come the wind or weather,
Best or wrst, whate'er they be,
We shall share together.

TIN WEDDING WHISTLE
by Ogden Nash

Though you know it anyhow
Listen to me, darling, now,
Proving what I need not prove
How I know I love you, love.
Near and far, near and far,
I am happy where you are;
Likewise I have never learnt
How to be it where you aren't.
Far and wide, far and wide,
I can walk with you beside;
Furthermore, I tell you what,
I sit and sulk where you are not.
Visitors remark my frown
When you're upstairs and I am down,
Yes, and I'm afraid I pout
When I'm indoors and you are out;
But how contentedly I view
Any room containing you.
In fact I care not where you be,
Just as long as it's with me.
In all your absences I glimpse
Fire and flood and trolls and imps.
Is your train a minute slothful?
I goad the stationmaster wrothful.
When with friends to bridge you drive
I never know if you're alive,
And when you linger late in shops
I long to telephone the cops.
Yet how worth the waiting for,
To see you coming through the door.
Somehow, I can be complacent
Never but with you adjacent.
Near and far, near and far,
I am happy where you are;
Likewise I have never learnt
How to be it where you aren't.
Then grudge me not my fond endeavor,
To hold you in my sight forever;
Let none, not even you, disparage
Such a valid reason for a marriage.

O MY BRIDE
by Victor Frankenstein

To my bride, I give you my heart
Sharing love each day, from the very start

To my bride, I give you my heart
Fry it up right, from the very start!

To my bride, I give you my kiss
Filling each day with joy and bliss

To my bride, I give you my kiss
Honey, you ain't seen nothing like this!

To my bride, I give you my being
To love, to play, to work and to sing

To my bride, I give you my bean
Please my dear, do nothing obscene.

To my bride, I give you my mind
Learning each day to be more kind

To my bride, I give you my mentality
Learning each day the art of venality!

To my bride, I give you my soul
Growing together to be more whole

To my bride, I give you my soul
R & B, baby will make us whole!

To my bride, I give you my life
Rejoicing each day that you are my wife

To my bride, I give you my life
Credit cards, ear wax and marital strife!

YOUR DAUGHTER
by Anonymous

When our daughter
was a little girl,
We often used to say
How proud and happy
we would be
On this, her Wedding Day.
Our daughter is not
lost to us,
In fact, we've gained a son;
We're happy you can share our joy
And see them joined as One.
So may we welcome all of you
And may ths whole day be
A Happy and a Joyous one
For friends and family.

THE WEDDING GIFT
by Anonymous

So what do you get
For the Bride and Groom
Whose house needs things
In every room?

When shopping for a present
Please, don’t be rash
As the option is there
To just give cash!

We hope that you don’t find
Our request to be funny
But the decision is yours
To buy a present, or give money

Now you have the choice
Please do not fuss
The most important thing of all
Is that you come celebrate with us!

THE SAVINGS POT
by Anonymous

We are sending out this invitation,
And hope you will join our celebration.
If to send a gift is your intention,
In modesty we would like to mention,
We have our dishes and towels for two,
We have pots and pans and oven mitts too,
So rather than something we have already got,
Our suggestion is a little something for our saving pot.
But, most importantly, we request,
That you turn up as our wedding guest,
As we are united by God hand in hand,
To celebrate our joining, Forever we’ll stand.

FINDING A GIFT
by Anonymous

If finding a gift is hard to do,
The idea we have is just for you!
Our House is quite complete,
Like every other in our street.
We've been together rather long,
So please don't get this wrong.
A wishing well will be present,
Monetary gifts will be 100 percent.
Simply place it in the wishing well,
then make a wish - but do not tell!
As the well’s tradition passes through,
Your wishes just, may come true.
If, however it's a gift you find,
Be assured we certainly will not mind.
But the more important thing to say
Is please join us on our special day.

FAIR PHOENIX BRIDE
by John Donne

“Up then, fair phoenix bride, frustrate the sun;
Thyself from thine affection
Takest warmth enough, and from thine eye
All lesser birds will take their jollity.
Up, up, fair bride, and call
Thy stars from out their several boxes, take
Thy rubies, pearls, and diamonds forth, and make
Thyself a constellation of them all;
And by their blazing signify
That a great princess falls, but doth not die.
Be thou a new star, that to us portends
Ends of much wonder; and be thou those ends
