|doubting still, I know now a good story
it may not occur in a fashion too disappointingly told
though I lack many words of accuracy
so, it starts with youth
two wood nymphs upon a couch, lounging languidly…
no, a marrying first!
a boy, a girl,
unusual osmosis uniting this pair
important sharing of two kind souls
blissful, caring spirits
did not mind craving a long country courtship
much ado about things so worthy and worldly
"look," says our boy,
"on boards with nails high up on that wall
among curious bric-à-brac
odd knicknacks and various things
can you find my gift of loving?"
"but look, my darling boy
I found a brilliant diamond!" says our girl
good position on this floor
"will you go to our marrying?"
kissing him wildly with joy
"silly fool, you know I will!"
viola and harp duo
a vicar chants "what will you say?"
boy says "I do"
girl says "I do too"
a child carrying a soft pillow
gold rings for marrying
ribbons of rainbow colors flow
party blast-off with a thousand origami birds
floating balloons fly upwards
dogs will not stop barking from dusk till dawn
saluting this union, this happy pair
who dancing a first waltz,
part quickly, brass band blaring
a crowd on our church stoop
"Bravo, bravissimo" hands clap loudly
jovial party folks sprinkling chinaman's food
our happy pair driving off
in a not-so-old auto
rattling with soup cans
holiday planning for two songbirds,
voyaging towards coastal Croatia,
fun in island sun and sand
harpsichord music on a boat floating
towards a rainbow horizon
"look up," our boy says to his girl
facing skywards, "that is Orion which glows softly
milions of light-days away"
our happy pair counts lucky shooting stars
falling from an indigo sky
towards souls and arms twisting in bliss
a boy, a girl, turn into man and woman
with a baby coming now in many, many days
only slight doubts about this marrying had I
though difficult a narrating it was
you got a small showing, following my dazzling knowing
so in conclusion, good liquid bounty I will appoint
