A Winter Wedding. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Everyone knew we were heading for snow.
Lowering banks of menacing clouds trying
To threaten cold wedding guests told us so.
You and I cuddled close. I was crying.

After a night of passionate rapture
You would be gone. Yet these moments were ours.
My body, heart, mind and soul you captured,
Snowbound, we then bound ourselves to love's vows.

Your presence has stayed, 'tho war took your life.
It shines in your son, and comforts your wife.


Dedicated to all war widows.

    kind regards

    It's almost unbearable to contemplate - losing one's husband after such a tiny time. Your poem captures with great skill, the the agony of separation and the joy of continuance in the genes of a next generation. A very moving poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

Wedding Poems

  1. The Wedding

    O marriage-bells, your clamor tells Two weddings in one breath. SHE marries whom her love compels: -- And I wed Goodman Death! My brain is blank, my tears are red; Listen, O God: -- "I will," he said: -- And I would that I were dead. Come groomsman Grief and bridesmaid Pain Come and stand with a ghastly twain. My Bridegroom Death is come o'er the meres To wed a bride with bloody tears. Ring, ring, O bells, full merrily: Life-bells to her, death-bells to me: O Death, I am true wife to thee!

  2. Wedding Toast

    St. John tells how, at Cana's wedding feast, The water-pots poured wine in such amount That by his sober count There were a hundred gallons at the least. It made no earthly sense, unless to show How whatsoever love elects to bless Brims to a sweet excess That can without depletion overflow. Which is to say that what love sees is true; That this world's fullness is not made but found. Life hungers to abound And pour its plenty out for such as you. Now, if your loves will lend an ear to mine, I toast you both, good son and dear new daughter. May you not lack for water, And may that water smack of Cana's wine.

  3. On A Wedding Anniversary

    The sky is torn across This ragged anniversary of two Who moved for three years in tune Down the long walks of their vows. Now their love lies a loss And Love and his patients roar on a chain; From every tune or crater Carrying cloud, Death strikes their house. Too late in the wrong rain They come together whom their love parted: The windows pour into their heart And the doors burn in their brain.

  4. Tin Wedding Whistle

    Though you know it anyhow Listen to me, darling, now, Proving what I need not prove How I know I love you, love. Near and far, near and far, I am happy where you are; Likewise I have never larnt How to be it where you aren't. Far and wide, far and wide, I can walk with you beside; Furthermore, I tell you what, I sit and sulk where you are not. Visitors remark my frown Where you're upstairs and I am down, Yes, and I'm afraid I pout When I'm indoors and you are out; But how contentedly I view Any room containing you. In fact I care not where you be, Just as long as it's with me. In all your absences I glimpse Fire and flood and trolls and imps. Is your train a minute slothful? I goad the stationmaster wrothful. When with friends to bridge you drive I never know if you're alive, And when you linger late in shops I long to telephone the cops. Yet how worth the waiting for, To see you coming through the door. Somehow, I can be complacent Never but with you adjacent. Near and far, near and far, I am happy where you are; Likewise I have never larnt How to be it where you aren't. Then grudge me not my fond endeavor, To hold you in my sight forever; Let none, not even you, disparage Such a valid reason for a marriage.

  5. The Wedding

    i wake up early dawn to witness the changes in sky from darkness to morn for a new bride tonight.. the pain is still here with sadness and anger today may be the end tomorrow is never a fine.. this man who'll be my groom is as good as Homer a monster from the north captured me as his lover.. i never love this man before but he never let me go he give me no freedom only to find..i love him too.... for all those days of confusions my hours filled with loneliness all i see is his perfect love a true love which is always the best... perhaps it's just a fair to think that i am a bride to be morning comes with no illusion a celebration for wedding anniversary.. and as the ceremony starts my eyes filled with tears he is lying in white satin while everybody stands with me... today...as we celebrate our anniversary no other words i can say i love you so much 'happy silver wedding anniversary'
