Bakery: The Wedding Cake



Bakery: The Wedding Cake
Dionne A. Reid

Bakery. Bakery.
The call is for a Bride and Groom.
Bake us a cake to be served after "Noon."

Welcomed is a baby or two,
If they are delivered, when our wedding date is due.

Bake us something sweet; for the tradition of something old, something new, and something blue.

A table for six or perhaps eight,
Let's call it the ABC Table, for the little children who couldn't miss our wedding date.

Cheese and crackers, something to nip before the extravaganza meal.

The photographers takes pictures; and the videographer's camera continues to wheel.

In addition to presents, and money in cash;
Forthcoming children will be GIFTS; in our lineages of the past.

With something to drink, we will partake;
The first slice of our wedding cake.

It is a symbolic dessert  that we will share with our guests.

It comes with our kiss, and a toast for everyone who is gathered;
Wishing us all the best !

With tiny bells and our circular wedding rings;

Later we will have disco dancing, and loves songs; that make our guests ask,
Who is that -- That sings?

About this poem

Feeding one another as husband and wife with the dessert of the wedding cake, means Communicate, and Nuture the relationship. The cake is shared amongst the guests. Lineage is that of a family history. -- With the hope of a child, or children to be added to their family tree. Children. Grandchildren. Great-grandchildren. Great-great-grandchildren. .. Dionne A.
