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

    We all wish them a happy wedded life forever--in fact i wish them a centennery of married life.

    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

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
