Secret Wedding at Christmas

Dry leaves carpeted the floor,
'Any objection to the joining of these two?'
No answer,only the snake hisses and the bee buzzes,
Holy matrimony far from family members and friends,
in the thick forest of the western coast under the 
great oak tree-the couple stands firmly.

Two hands joined by mother nature with a silver ring,
in the presence of the wind and wood pecker,
Orchestrated music provided by the rustling of leaves,
and far away in the city Christmas is celebrated,
Carols in churches,kids wallow in parks with
amusements and adults in bars with bottles of drinks.

They stand in front of this true Christmas tree,
Rays of hope from the sun illuminate the forest,
The dream of the Two becomes a reality,
Hope of living together in tranquility in focus,
The stage is set for a new life as cupid blesses,
No one,not even the black fly can put asunder.
