A wedding poem for the Bride, spoken in the first person:
How will I feel when that day finally arrives?
When all of life is a flux and my hope simply drives.
This day’s a day to wed—the day of fabulous dreams,
My hope, my God, my favour, for whom my groom esteems.
In numbness and happiness, overwhelmed and excited too,
These feelings I have, have never been quite so true,
All these years and my hope’s now come to be,
Right throughout this day my experience will be glee.
