The bride wore red - a Christmas berry red,
so pretty in its contrast with the white
of snow along the tree lined path which led
her to a place that streamed with morning light -
a clearing with an alter in the wood!
The day had grown quite mild! In winter’s sun
good friends and relatives in jackets stood
to see the happy couple joined as one.
Three colors decorated that bright day:
surrounding green of pines and white of snow
with roses red and white in bride’s bouquet,
and in her hair a sprig of mistletoe!
The groom’s adored had got her wish come true -
A Christmas wedding in each yuletide hue.
