Christmas Wedding

She walks down snow covered path to the church
Christmas approaches she'll receive her gift
She reaches for the door made of clear birch

Stomping her feet she gives her skirt a lift
Entering she takes a look around
Christmas approaches she'll receive her gift

The sanctuary quiet not a sound
She imagines all the happy faces
Entering and taking a look around

It would be warmer in other places
Yet it is magical at Christmas time
She imagines all the happy faces

It's kind of funny that both their names rhyme
His name is Chris, she's always been called Miss
It seems more magical at Christmas time

In less than a week her husband she'll kiss
His name is Chris, she's always been called Miss
Behind her she closes door made of birch
Down snow covered path away from the church

Written November 12th, 2013
For Shadow's Christmas wedding contest.

    I enjoyed this one. Romantic images abound. My grandparents were married on Christmas Eve and grandma always said she couldn't imagine a better time to say I do.

    Beautifully done Richard...Call my crazy, but I get a sad feeling from this gem of yours, as if she is single and fantasizing or maybe even jilted? Regardless, this is a VERY well written piece and should place high in Shadow's contest - Tim

    Thanks Tim I like your thought although that was not my intention.

    Very creative Richard, I can imagine this quiet well, and I love the name matching, It reads like a true story, is it? Either way I think it's an excellent entry for the contest xxx

    They are SIX, but who's counting, right? ;) Richard....you always have poems there. In fact, I doubled checked now to see if what you said could possibly be true cause I always see your name everywhere! ;) Well, something must be wrong with the world....I'm sure Lamoureux will be coming up time and again soon! :) Maybe a little more romance??? ;)

    I only have one on the list currently so from my perspective four is pretty impressive.
