Wedding Poem #1
This poem by William Shakespeare is a good example of free verse:
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
Another Wedding Poem
Youíre the thought that starts each morning,
The conclusion to each day.
You are in all that I do,
And everything I say.
Youíre the smile on my face,
The twinkle in my eye.
The warmth inside my heart,
The fullness in my life.
Youíre the hand thatís laced in mine,
And the coat upon my back.
My friend, my love,
My shoulder to lean on.
Youíre my silly, mature, caring,
Thoughtful, bright, and honest guy.
The one who holds me tightly,
When I need to cry.
Youíre the dimple in my cheek,
The ever-constant tingle in my soul.
The voice that makes me weak,
The happiness of my life.
You are all Iíve wanted,
You are all I need.
You are all Iíve dreamed of,
You are all of this to me.
