The Promise

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Eileen Rafter The sun danced on the snow with a sparkling smile, As two lovers sat quietly, alone for a while. Then he turned and said, with a casual air (Though he blushed from his chin to the tips of his hair), “I think I might like to get married to you” “Well then, she said, “Well there’s a thought, But what if we can’t...

Love And Age

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) I play’d with you ‘mid cowslips blowing, When I was six and you were four; When garlands weaving, flower-balls throwing, Were pleasures soon to please no more. Through groves and meads, o’er grass and heather, With little playmates to and fro, We wander’d hand in hand together; But that was sixty years ago. You...

To Celia

Benjamin Johnson (1572-1637) Drinke to me, onely, with mine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kisse but in the cup, And I’ll not look for wine. The thirst that from the soule doth rise, Doth aske a drink divine: But might I of Jove’s Nectar sup, I would not change for thine. I sent thee, late, a rosie wreath, Not so much honoring thee, As...

Wedding-Wind

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Philip Larkin (1922-1985) The wind blew all my wedding-day, And my wedding-night was the night of the high wind; And a stable door was banging, again and again, That he must go and shut it, leaving me Stupid in candlelight, hearing rain, Seeing my face in the twisted candlestick, Yet seeing nothing. When he came back He said the horses were restless, and I was sad...

Yes, I’ll Marry You

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Pam Ayres Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear, And here’s the reason why; So I can push you out of bed When the baby starts to cry, And if we hear a knocking And it’s creepy and it’s late, I hand you the torch you see, And you investigate. Yes I’ll marry you, my dear, You may not apprehend it, But when the tumble-drier goes It’s you that...

A Birthday

Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894) My heart is like a singing bird Whose nest is in a water’d shoot; My heart is like an apple-tree Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit; My heart is like a rainbow shell That paddles in a halcyon sea; My heart is gladder than all these, Because my love is come to me. Raise me a dais of silk and down; Hang it with...

Our Love

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Bruce B. Wilmer Our love is something we have built From passions, hopes and dreams. It’s safe from any passing moods, Secure from all extremes. It’s something real and special, Something solid, something pure. It’s something we can always count on, ringing sound and sure. It’s something grounded in the heart, Emitting confidence. It lives in...

O Tell Me The Truth About Love

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

W.H. Auden (1907-1973) Some say love’s a little boy, And some say it’s a bird, Some say it makes the world go around, Some say that’s absurd, And when I asked the man next-door, Who looked as if he knew, His wife got very cross indeed, And said it wouldn’t do.Does it look like a pair of pyjamas, Or the ham in a temperance hotel? Does its...

My True Love Hath My Heart

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Sir Philip Sidney (1554-1586) My true-love hath my heart, and I have his, By just exchange one for another given: I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss, There never was a better bargain driven:My true-love hath my heart, and I have his, My heart in me keeps him and me in one, My heart in him his thoughts and senses guide: He loves my heart, for once it was his...

A Red, Red Rose

Robert Burns (1759-1796) O, my love’s like a red, red rose, That’s newly sprung in June: O my love’s like the melodie, That’s sweetly play’d in tune. As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, So deep in love am I, And I will love thee still, my dear, Till a’ the seas gang dry. Till a’ the seas gang dry, my Dear, And the rocks melt...

A White Rose

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

John Boyle O’Reilly (1844–1890) The red rose whispers of passion, And the white rose breathes of love; O the red rose is a falcon, And the white rose is a dove. But I send you a cream-white rosebud With a flush on its petal tips; For the love that is purest and sweetest Has a kiss of desire on the lips. Share and...

Author Unknown I cannot promise you a life of sunshine; I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold; I cannot promise you an easy pathway That leads away from change or growing old.But I can promise all my heart’s devotion; A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow; A love that’s ever true and ever growing; A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow....

Somewhere

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Sir Edwin Arnold (1832-1904) Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours for one lone soul, another lonely soul - Each chasing each through all the weary hours, And meeting strangely at one sudden goal; Then blend they – like green leaves with golden flowers, Into one beautiful and perfect whole - And life’s long night is ended, and the way Lies open...

Sonnet 18

Sonnet 18 William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimm’d; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By...

To My Dear Loving Husband

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672) If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee; If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye woman, if you can. I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold Or all the riches that the East doth hold. My love is such that rivers cannot quench, Nor ought but love from thee, give recompense. Thy...

So, We’ll Go No More A-Roving

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

Lord Byron (1788-1824) So, we’ll go no more a-roving So late into the night, Though the heart be still as loving, And the moon be still as bright. For the sword outweighs its sheath, And the soul wears out the breast, And the heart must pause to breathe, And love itself have rest. Though the night was made for loving, And the day returns too soon, Yet...

Sonnet 116

By in Love Poems, Wedding Articles | 0 comments

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds. Or bends with the remover to remove: O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark, That looks on tempests and is not shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken....

Love Lives

John Clare (1793-1864) Love lives beyond The tomb, the earth, which fades like dew. I love the fond, The faithful, and the true Love lives in sleep, The happiness of healthy dreams Eve’s dews may weep, But love delightful seems. ‘Tis heard in Spring When light and sunbeams, warm and kind, On angels’ wing Bring love and music to the mind. And where...

The Colour Of My Love

David Foster and Arthur Janov I’ll paint a sun to warm your heart Knowing that we’ll never part. I’ll draw the years all passing by So much to learn, so much to try. I’ll paint my mood in shadow blue, Paint my soul to be with you. I’ll sketch your lips in shaded tones, Draw your mouth to my own. I’ll trace a hand to wipe your...
