Wedding Bells

Spread the love

An overseas bride;
Dressed in white.
Her flushed red cheeks;
Suggesting her delight.

Wedding bells;
Around the corner.
Feeling the Sun;
Growing warmer.

Jazz music and silver chimes;
Festive faces everywhere.
Gliding down the aisle;
Radiating charm and flair.

Wedding bells;
Around the corner.
Feeling the Sun;
Growing warmer.

The nuptials have begun;
Laden blossoms of apple boughs.
The bride and groom thus appear;
Exchanging loving vows.

Wedding bells;
Around the corner.
Feeling the Sun;
Growing warmer.

Music continues to play;
Everything’s so grand.
Newly wedded bride;
Playing with a strand.

Wedding bells;
Around the corner.
Feeling the Sun;
Growing warmer.

    Very pretty, ‘overseas bride,’ ‘warm sun,’ and ‘wedding bells.’
    Quite a combination, you wove them in for a very pretty poem, nice job writing!
    BTW, I have both an overseas DIL and an overseas SIL. He is now a U.S. citizen, she doesn’t want to be.
