To The Bride

he is a small sampling of nuptial bliss
grampa and gramma we thank you for this
your prodigy abound both near and far
they’ve spread like the seeds of a hollywood star

and here in the state where the big reds rule
we find your family all fit in one room
there long and there short and they’re so in between
I’m certain tonight there will be more than one scene

so if by chance you should hear the groom cry
don’t be startled, and don’t turn away
It’s a family trait that goes back quite far
you see my cousin’s a Grisetti and a sensitive guy


For Joann Grisetti's contest My Cousin's Wedding
