Don't forget the confetti for the Poetry Bus this week.

This week Argent has set us the task of writing something suitable to be read at a wedding. I thought beautiful thoughts and tried to conjure up some wisdom and sound advice, but they wouldn't produce a poem, then my sense of humour invaded the task and I think my contribution would be better suited to being read at the reception than during the ceremony itself - or maybe not at all!

It's full of sweeping generalisation and is a bit 'tongue in cheek'.

The Seven Stages of Marriage.

Fire and passion.

Flowers and candles.

Nappies and teething.

Debts and bills.

Trials and tribulations.

Fanning the embers.

Cocoa and cuddles.

Argent said...

Aw, love this. By the way, Don't Feed the Pixies actually set the challenge this week. He is currently blogless, so I'm just hosting.

I wouldn't like to say which stage we are at....

Peter Goulding said...

Oh dear, I think we're quite far down that list!
A masterclass in succinctness.

Tongue-in-cheek but very true! I missed out on nappies and teething sadly but have experienced all the others.

Helen said...

Every one of them ... been there, done that! No regrets!
