Wedding Bells – A Villanelle

Our nephew Jacob is marrying the love of his life Baiba today. We are looking forward to attending the wedding and reception. In anticipation of the festivities I wrote this villanelle for them. It’s my first attempt at a villanelle, another poetry form with specific repeating pattern.

Wedding Bells

Wedding bells are ringing
Love in the air tonight
Angels all are singing

Guests welcomed to the fling
Revel with all their might
Wedding bells are ringing

In her hand blooms of spring
Beautiful bride in white
Angels all are singing

See gifts and love we bring
Sharing our smiles so bright
Wedding bells are ringing

Symbol of love, a ring
Beloved vows they write
Angels all are singing

Bride and groom are kissing
Wedded bliss close in sight
Wedding bells are ringing
Angels all are singing
