‘Twas the Bride

‘Twas the Bride

‘Twas the night before New Years, and all through the house,

The girlfriend was angry, she wasn’t a spouse!

She hoped for the joy that Christmas would bring.

But Christmas had passed, and she still had no ring!

They’d been together for over two years.

Long-term commitment; that must be his fear!

She thought, “That’s the reason, that I’m still single.

I’m breaking it off!”  Then the phone gave a jingle.

“Come outside,” said the voice, and then went away.

She opened the door, and there was a sleigh!

He whisked her away, grinned like a fox,

Got down on one knee, and opened the box.

Twas the first day of New Year.  Her eyes opened wide.

“Yesterday, I’m a girlfriend.  Today, I’m a bride!”

She started to panic.  “There’s so much to do!

To plan a whole wedding.  What do I do?”

Then she remembered, the magazine page

And the radio heard, before she was engaged.

Her eyes, how they twinkled!  Her smile seemed to glow!

“I can plan everything at the big bridal show!

“Reception hall!  Caterer!  Florist and tux!

Save money, save time, and save acid reflux!

“Video!  Photo!  Limousine!  Gown!

I won’t have to be running all over town!”

So she called her attendants.  To the show they all flew.

Ate catering samples, and wedding cake, too!

And I heard her exclaim, holding prizes she won,

“I found all that I need.  Now my planning is done!”
