Send A Poem To Say What You Feel
It is always nice to send poems along with your wishes in your congratulations card or letter. There are many different poems out there but they all talk about the same things, love, commitment, married life, etc. We have compiled some poems that discuss what marriage is all about, what you wish for a newly married couple, and more.
Never Marry But For Love
Never marry but for
love; but see that thou lovest what is lovely. He that minds a body
and not a soul has not the better part of that relationship, and
will consequently lack the noblest comfort of a married life.
A husband and wife that love one another show their children that they should do so too. Others visibly lose their authority in their families by their contempt of one another, and teach their children to be unnatural by their own examples.
Let not enjoyment lessen, but augment, affection; it being the basest of passions to like when we have not, what we slight when we possess.
Here it is we ought to search out our pleasure, where the field is large and full of variety, and of an enduring nature; sickness, poverty or disgrace being not able to shake it because it is not under the moving influences of worldly contingencies.
Nothing can be more entire and without reserve; nothing more zealous, affectionate and sincere; nothing more contented than such a couple, nor greater temporal felicity than to be one of them.
William Penn (1644-1718)
Let your love be
stronger than your hate and anger.
Jane Wells (1886)
Feel free to use these poems as they are or pick out what you like about them to send as a shorter version of the poem. There are some talented writers out there and you should help to pass their message of love within your wedding card or congratulatory letter.

May the sun bring
you new energy by day,
Our family is a
circle of love and strength.
To Be One With Each Other
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?
George Eliot (1819-1880)
