A Bride from an Orphanage

An innocent virgin from a hidden haunted house
Who comes out to the new civilized world?
The Bridegroom is unknown from the lower depths?
We all wish them a happy wedded life forever
And bring a dozen of polite offspring to this lopsided cruel world?

* I humbly dedicate this poem to the prominent Sri Lankan singer Maestro Pandith Amaradeva and the lyrics of this great song by the celebrated poet Mahagama Sekara............
' The river flows from the past
And the beauty of the dream world
I see in your eyes
my beloved.'

    My best wishes go to the newly-married couple! The world is cruel and already far too populated, so dozen offspring would, I guess, be far too many; one or two should be enough. (Report) Reply

    A very good description with a ironic political barb in its tail. You share your social conscience with the reader. Fine penning. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply
