Local poet, Cleora Lovell (1918-1997), included this verse in her 1973 book, “Unicorn in the Wilderness,” found in our local authors collection at the Steele Memorial Library.

Winter Wedding

Earth is wearing a wedding gown
Of angel feathers that floated down;
Sunlight reflects from her happy face
Framed by a veil of chantilly lace.
A showy trousseau designed for her,
Lavishly edged with ermine fur,
Is twice as soft as a kitten’s purr.

Gifts of crystal and silver gleam;
The wedding cake is a gourmet’s dream;
Fountains of flowers spill everywhere;
Snowflake confetti fills the air.
The nuptial rites, highly magnified,
Prove a Heavenly Father’s pride
When his daughter, Earth, becomes a bride.
