love songs for the engage-d

Hello. Mitch asked me to marry him.


We would like to center our wedding on a line from a beloved poem and have the entirety to it read during the ceremony. Today while searching for the most fitting poem, I realized something. Because, I mean, we love poetry and to read it aloud to each other. One might think that since this is the case we would already know a perfect one, right? Actually no.

Because a majority of our relationships has been spent apart, separated by long Texas highways (and multiple states at times) I've realized that many of our favorite love poems are about separation and not togetherness.

So, it is time to harvest a new crop of favorites-- poetry that gives us the language of together, of forever. Suggestions are more than welcome.

Thank you for reading us all the way through our dating relationship, fellow bloggers. Here's to the next stretch of open road.

Congratulations Sierra!

I'm so happy for you and Mitch. We haven't talked in a long while, but I do frequently peek at your blog to see what's going on in your life--Mitch is a lucky guy to have your hand. As it goes, I soon will be getting married, too. May 16th in fact. On the poem front, I've always loved Cummings' "Somewhere I have never travelled, gladly beyond."
