IN-FORM POET WEDNESDAY – EPITHALAMIUM

I ask that you indulge me, but my daughter Melissa gets married in two days to her best friend, Ryan and my mind and time have been focused on this happy occasion. I must admit, Dad is getting a bit melancholy and the four of us have been lost in reminiscence. So in keeping with the mood we will delve into trying our hand at an Epithalamium,  a poem written in honor of the bride and groom.

Now,  I’m not fishing for tributes for the two of them, any young married couple can serve as your inspiration. All I ask is to just give it a try. Walt.

MARIE ELENA’S ATTEMPT:

“A cord of three strands is not easily broken.” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:12

ONE (Choka)

A cord of three strands
Is not easily broken
As two become one
In the eyes of God
Woven, entwined, interlaced
Sustained by His might

WALT’S HONOR:

ONE STEP AT A TIME

We walk together, step-by-step,
side-by-side,me filled with pride,
and you a blushing bride.
You cannot hide the love
you have for that man
who waits nervously to take
my place beside you to guide you.
Eyes fixed on you as we stroll
ever closer to the end of this phase
of our lives together. The handsome
guys always get the prettiest girl,
and all I can do is watch you go.
Be happy and grow together.
