Thread Name: Reading or poem for a wedding? HELP!
Subject: Reading or poem for a wedding? HELP!
I have been asked to do a reading at my son's wedding.

I have looked at Shakespeare and loads of poets for something but can't find anything that grabs my imagination.

My best bet so far is Christopher Marlow's "Passionate Shepherd to His Love".

It is a summer wedding, hopefully outdoors, in the Southern Hemisphere.

Anyone got any ideas or great readings they have used?

If this forum remains true to form someone out there will know of something very special.
