My niece and goddaughter got married last weekend in Maryland. It was a great occasion to celebrate with my family 70 and counting , and a great occasion for poem elfing. Look how she grips her father as she walks down the aisle towards her beloved with such transparent joy. She can hardly hold it all in. If I could have placed a poem on her person it would be this, from an unknown Chinese poet:. But I did manage to hide a few poems over the weekend.
May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky.
