Twas The Night Before The Wedding - Wedding Poem by Ms Moem

Twas the night before the wedding, and in a young bride’s dreams
Ran thoughts of blissful lifelong love, and everything that means.
Thoughts of morning waking, beside the one she loved;
Fitting together perfectly, like hand fits to a glove.

Twas the night before the wedding, and a young groom’s sleepy smile
Re-lived the story of the girl, who captured his heart with style.
The moment that he saw her, he knew it was for life
And he knew he’d found the lady who was destined to be his Wife.

Twas the night before the wedding, and guests from far and wide
Looked forward to the occasion, of witnessing this marriage, with pride.
Their best clothes pressed and ready, and gifts prepared to give
Ready to help create memories, to be cherished as long as we live.

On the morning of the wedding, all parties gathered together
To celebrate this union, that is bound in love, forever.
And everyone there present, was overjoyed to see
The Bride and Groom united and as happy as happy can be.

Super Injunctions

super injunctionSuper, simply super, there is gossip on the loose;
Oh, hang on, no, a super injunction is silencing the truth.
What is a super injunction? Well, put as simply as I can
It’s keeping the secrets of the rich, safe from the common man.

Well isn’t that jolly super!! Some super secrets will be hidden for life.
Though we’re led to believe one super injunctee has told his ghast sticken wife.
It’s also said that Twitter is awash with the names of the rest;
What next for thr super injunction? What other secrets will be supressed?

Not sure I see the point in them, as it simply fuels speculation
So now far from being secret, it’s talked about across the nation.
So my advice to these chaps would be, rise above your manly functions
And consider whether a one-night-stand is worth the need for a super injunction.

*UPDATE* The subject of the superinjunction has been left feeling bitter
After his privacy was compromised through the wonder of Twitter.
This highly speculated superinjunction proved to be of little use
In fact it was almost the equivalent of putting his head a noose!

Derwent Poem Commission For The Royal Wedding

The Majestic Derwent Royal Wedding Poem Scroll

To commemorate the Royal Wedding, is a commission unlike any other
As William & Catherine will make history as they declare their love for each other.
I was commissioned by Derwent to write a commemorative bespoke poem;
This world renowned company was thrilled to work with Ms Moem.

royal wedding poetry commission

The poem is written on a scroll, presented in a maple box
Filled with 500 pencils, which is really rather a lot.
The collection is called The Majestic and it looks rather regal indeed;
What more could any newlywed Duke or Duchess of Cambridge possibly need?

The Majestic by Derwent

With just 500 boxes created, it is a true limited edition
With a Royal couple and their children within it’s future vision
As the 1st of the 500 will be presented to the couple themselves
Perhaps becoming a cherished heirloom to keep upon their Royal shelves.

The Majestic Royal Wedding Commemorative Box

Derwent have been celebrating the Royals since before Victoria came to the throne
And so it’s an honour to be involved, with a poetic contribution of my own.
So check out The Majestic and tell me what you think of the poem
And enter the Royal Wedding Giveaway from Derwent and Ms Moem.

Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s Royal Wedding

Catherine Middleton was determined to celebrate in her own style
And so rows of beautiful maple trees, flank Westminster Abbey’s aisle.

Westminster Abbey is stunning and befitting of this Royal pair
The atmosphere will be electric, how I wish I could be there!

William and Catherine’s unison is the epitome of modern times.

Pre-recorded, without a hint of how our Bride’s hair will be.

prince william tells catherine middleton she is beautiful at the altar royal wedding

When Catherine Middleton reached the altar, William beamed at her in pride
And William mouthed “You’re beautiful” to his clearly besotted Bride!
If I hadn’t already shed a tear, the time would’ve been now
And so I listened enchanted as they said their Royal Wedding vows.

When it comes to Royal Weddings, it just simply doesn’t get better than this
And the fairytale Royal ending, comes to us with the Royal Wedding kiss!

The Royal Wedding Of The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge

The Duke And Duchess of Cambridge will take their titles with pride
As today HRH Prince William makes Catherine Middleton his bride.

As this pair of childhood sweethearts, each marry their soulmate.
