There goes the Bride

scattered flowers

He stood at the altar, eyes wide

Holding back tears, on lack of a bride

Her father announced the revelation

To the curious, shocked congregation

My daughter informed me at break of day

She fancied the groomsman and ran off to L.A.

Prose for Thought

    I love the pace of this! I feel bad for the groom but as everyone said I guess he was probably better off.

      I know, really it has turned out to be a bit sad & a bit funny : )

    Haha that was funny! Amazing how rhythm and rhyme can make something funny when it could otherwise have been sad. Very clever.

      Looks like everyone is in agreement with you about the bride.

    I agree–he’s better off in the long run 🙂 Loved your revelation/congregation rhyme.

    The groom got off easy, I think. Lucky guy. I like the rhyme, which adds a lighter touch.

  12. July 15, 2014 / 09:10

    I feel that the groom must be happy! 🙂

      Haha, that’s a good way to look at it, she was fickle.
