Garden Wedding

By Effigy

There’s a problem with a wedding
When no Chapel is in sight;
Without the Church accoutrements
How can we get it right?

When into church a bride will step
The first thing she will mention
Between the pews and Aisle will be
Her centre of attention.

Then if she lifts her eyes a tad,
Not too much, or she’ll falter,
Pos Churches always seem to have,
Right up the front, an Alter.

To make sure all the folks sing from
The same page of the book,
A Hymn-board hangs in plainest sight
Up high upon a hook.

But if there’s no Church building here
Her chance is pretty slim,
Of saying as the music plays,
“Just wait, Aisle Alter Hymn!”
