Popular Marriage Poems
Well Suited
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Having been unemployed for some time, I had a fresh job prospect,
As sunlit rainbow beamed jaunty colors, the last time you checked.

I really needed some good news, as my savings were almost gone;
And without the paycheck coming in, I could not hold out very long.

The year before I had been laid off, but I resolutely kept searching,
Knowing I am good at what I do, like nature is good at blossoming!

This job prospect seemed promising, but I was tense nonetheless,

The Country Of Marriage
by Wendell Berry

I.

I dream of you walking at night along the streams
of the country of my birth, warm blooms and the nightsongs
of birds opening around you as you walk.
You are holding in your body the dark seed of my sleep.

II.

This comes after silence. Was it something I said

Maude Clare
by Christina Georg Rossetti

Out of the church she followed them
With a lofty step and mien:
His bride was like a village maid,
Maude Clare was like a queen.

“Son Thomas, ” his lady mother said,
With smiles, almost with tears:
“May Nell and you but live as true
As we have done for years;

A Fantasy
by Louise Gluck

I'll tell you something: every day
people are dying. And that's just the beginning.
Every day, in funeral homes, new widows are born,
new orphans. They sit with their hands folded,
trying to decide about this new life.

Then they're in the cemetery, some of them
for the first time. They're frightened of crying,
sometimes of not crying. Someone leans over,
tells them what to do next, which might mean

Creed
by Steve Turner

We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin.
We believe everything is OK
as long as you don't hurt anyone,
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your knowledge.

We believe in sex before during
and after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.

Parents Tearful Farewell for Daughter
by Rafiq Pasha

To a place new, land new
You shall go – one day
Leaving behind memories lovely
For Papa and mama – my little fay

I knew this day, would come one day
When you would find Prince of your Dreams
You shall leave behind golden memories
of childhood, to cherish on reams and reams

Purple Gameboy
by Gonzalo Mendez

Locking my door before escaping to a blanket fortress
where a Gameboy waits beneath my pillow
helping me ignore the calamity from the rooms beyond.

Mother’s second husband,
whose fingernails find purchase in her neck
draining the stars from her veins.

Transparent and plastic, I tremble
tracing the shapes over and over unaware

Devotion
by Brian Cowan

How old you've grown, my love.
And yet,
You haven't changed a bit,
From that young girl I first saw,
On whom I plied my wit;
To win her
And even then, you lived within her
As now, she lives in you.

My love at long last
by Joseph Ogbonna

Sometime in December,
2008, our magnetic gaze of love
did more than just speak or act.
It was in wedlock consummated.
And like a dream, ten years have
gone by, as our tender fruits of
affection continue to sprout daily.

Continue to rest on my shoulder
until the sun on our wedlock sets.
