A White Bride Poem for White Wednesday

There was a young woman with luck on her side,
she went to the seaside to watch the tide.
Her fortune was made with buttons of pearl,
all dresses had them to please every girl.

 She sat on the rocks with the sun sinking down,
and thought to herself, will I ever wear a gown,
with layers of lace and pearl buttons down the back?
Then up walked a man who called himself Jack.

They talked until dawn, till the seagulls began to sing,
she thought to herself, will I ever wear a ring?,
with a diamond or a ruby or maybe an opal,
her heart skipped a beat, she was ever hopeful.

They made a good match, they were never apart,
he'd won her over and touched her heart.
They stayed together after she wore her gown and ring
till they both passed on and the angels did sing .

So,when you see a pearl button, look to the skies,
and think of the young  woman with luck on her side.

To go back to the party:
