Snow at the wedding

Beautiful winter wedding

The Mistletoe Bride

by Carol Ann Duffy

The December bride who, bored with dancing, skipped from the castle hall to play hide-and-seek, a white bird flickering into the dark . . .
The groom, who searched each room, calling her name; then the bridal guests, flame-lit, checking the grounds . . .
The fifty Christmases till a carpenter jemmied an old oak chest; the skeleton with its unstrung pearls, loose emeralds, its rings of diamond, sapphire, gold . . .
The running feet, the shouting for others to see what he’d seen; mistletoe in the loose bones of a hand . . .

like love, patiently green.
