A wedding poem

In my mind, baking and writing easily go together. They both require creativity and thought about the content and what will appeal to the specific audience. They also both require planning and attention to detail. Every since I was a girl of 12 and I read the description of the wild plum tree that reminded Anne of a bride in Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, I have wanted to write a poem about a bride. I finally got around to writing such a poem last year when another colleague of mine got married. As I have been on the topic of weddings and brides for the last few days, I thought I would share the poem I wrote on this blog.

Wedding fun

Down the aisle she floats,

Complection, peaches ‘n cream;

Hair, a spun gold mass,

Shimmers in a bright sun beam.


Dress a gorgeous creation,

Shoes and veil, match,

A playful zephyr blows,

The veil on a twig to catch.


Her happiness, like sunshine,

Is a joy to behold;

Their love is a journey,

Just starting to unfold.


The groom, strong and manly,

Full of fun and smiles;

Easily he ensnared her,

With his attentive wiles.




The guests gaze enchanted,

As they take their vows;

The bride, blushes and giggles,

He, his audience, wows.


We wish them all the best,

As they start their life together;

Their bonds of love strong,

To last from now, forever.
