Wedding Poems About Love

You can feel the love at a wedding. Let these wedding poems about love remind you of these feelings that we experience throughout life.

Have you ever tried to describe love? Especially the love felt at a wedding. A description of love that was written many years ago by Lilly describes love as follows:
"Love is heat full of coldness, a sweet full of bitterness, a pain full of pleasantness, making the thoughts, eyes, hearts, and ears, born of desire, nursed by delight, weaned by jealousy, killed by dissembling, buried by ingratitude. A man has choice to begin love, but not to end it. Love-knots are tied with eyes, and cannot be untied with hands; made fast with thoughts, not to be unloosed with fingers. And this is love!"

  1. Inspires Hope
    Poet: Shenstone

    Ah! love every hope can inspire;
    It banishes wisdom the while;
    And the lip of the nymph we admire
    Seems for ever adorn'd with a smile.

  2. The Dear Moment
    Poet: Goring

    Not the dear moment I beheld thee first,
    When my fond soul stood hovering at my eyes,
    And every passage of my yielding heart
    Expanded wide to let the charmer in,
    Not scattered half the flames around my breast.
    As I this moment feel.

  3. Love's Philosophy
    Poet: Percy Shelley

    The fountains mingle with the river,
    And the rivers with the ocean;
    The winds of heaven mix forever,
    With a sweet emotion;
    Nothing in the world is single;
    All things by a law divine
    In one another's being mingle:-
    Why not I with thine?
    See! the mountains kiss high heaven,
    And the waves clasp one another;
    Now sister flower would be forgiven
    If it disdained its brother;
    And the sunlight clasps the earth,
    And the moonbeams kiss the sea:-
    What are all these kissing's worth,
    If thou kiss not me?

  4. One Love
    Poet: Wordsworth

    Two hearts together, that began
    Their spring-time with one love, and that have need
    Of mutual pity and forgiveness, sweet
    To grant or be received.

  5. Love comforteth like sunshine after rain

  6. Love Contrasted
    Poet: Dryden

    Love comforteth like sunshine after rain,
    But lust's effect is tempest after sun;
    Love's gentle spring doth always fresh remain;
    Lust's winter comes, ere summer half be done.
    Love surfeits not; lust like a glutton dies;
    Love is all truth; lust full of forged lies.

  7. We'll Live In Love, And Loving Die
    Poet: C. MacKay

    I love my Love in the days of Spring,
    And for her sake each living thing:
    We gather garlands by the way.
    We pluck the blooms of the merry May;
    We roam the woods, we trace the streams.
    Our waking thoughts are bright as dreams:
    No bee on the blossom, no lark in the sky,
    Is happier than my Love and I.

    I'll love my love in the Summer time,
    Our years shall ripen to their prime;
    Well sit in the shade a little more.
    Beneath the elm-trees at the door;
    We'll watch with joy the children run,
    We'll give the world our benison:
    No bird in its nest on the tree-tops high
    Shall be so blithe as my Love and I.

    I'll love my Love in the Autumn eyes,
    We'll gather in our barley sheaves;
    We'll reap our com, we'll press our vine,
    We'll hear on the hills our lowing kine;
    We'll pluck our peaches from the wall,
    We'll give our friends a festival:
    There is no joy the world can buy
    That we shall not share, my Love and I.

    I'll love my Love in the Winter cold;
    So shall our tale of life be told;
    We'll sit together by the hearth.
    Spectators of a younger mirth!
    And, as the children come and go,
    We'll dwell in the light where their faces glow;
    Well live in love, and loving die,
    And still live on, my Love and I!

  8. What Is Love?
    Poet: Thomas Heywood

    Now what is love I will thee tell,
    It is the fountain and the well,
    Where pleasure and repentance dwell:
    It is perhaps the sansing bell,
    That rings all in to heaven or hell.
    And this is love, and this is love, as I hear tell.

    Now what is love I will you show:
    A thing that creeps and cannot go;
    A prize that passeth to and fro;
    A thing for me, a thing for mo :
    And he that proves shall find it so.
    And this is love, and this is love, sweet friend,
    I trow.

  9. Ask Not What Is Love
    Poet: P, J, Bailey

    Ask not of me, love, what is love!
    Ask what is good of God above -
    Ask of the great sun what is light -
    Ask what is darkness of the night -
    Ask of sin what may be forgiven -
    Ask what is happiness of heaven -
    Ask what is folly of the crowd -
    Ask what is fashion of the shroud-
    Ask what is sweetness of thy kiss -
    Ask of thyself what beauty is?

  10. Smiles And Tears
    Poet: Henry Ware, Jr.

    There are smiles and tears in that gathering- band,
    Where the heart is pledged with the trembling hand;
    What trying thoughts in the bosom swell
    As the bride bids parents and home farewell!
    Kneel down by the side of the tearful fair,
    And strengthen the perilous hour with prayer.
