Ever After


It was a Wedding everyone had been looking toward
When a week before the Wedding the groom got floored
He broke his leg falling from a roofer's ladder
He and his bride-to-be could not have been sadder.

To the emergency room for endless hours of waiting
All the while the angst groom himself was berating
It was medically decided surgery would be needed
To the Orthopedic Doc bride and groom conceded.

Surgery completed, a full leg cast was applied
The disappointed bride bitterly cried
How was her Wedding going down the toilet?
Could her Fiance be trying to foil it?

Within the week he was bounding about,
Mastering crutches they let out a shout!
The Wedding did take place nearly as they planned;
At the reception the musicians struck up the band.

When all ten Bridesmaids and Groomsmen were announced
Each couple emerged to the howling of exuberant laughter
As one by one ten men on crutches sprightly bounced
The volume of jocular sound hit the rafter,
A fun-filled memory to last ever after.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
