Today, two individuals were joined,
Four siblings, eight immediate relations,
And over sixteen other friends enjoined
To give support and joy to celebrations-
For love of one another two were wed,
For love of two, so many came together
To give good wishes for their road ahead;
That it be strewn with great things altogether.
Therefore, it is no wonder that among
Those gathered were the seeds of friendships new,
That when the vows were vowed and songs were sung
Kinships unfurled and old connections grew.
This gathering was notably inclined
To have respect for all the ties that bind.
