Of Veils and NuptialsNeatly the strands are caught up
In a doughnut shaped figure
At the top of the cranium
Of a woman whose face hides
unidentifiable, under a veil.
covered in red muck
That mannequins apply to find
Male figures and a veil.
Golden shines the halo around her finger
Symbolising a bended knee and a movie scene,
Of rolling hills, and fresh air, and serenity
And smiles, and laughs, and cries
Of a moment veiled in awe.
Eagerly chimes a voice
Across the Basilica
Alive with proud relatives,
Of the mannequin who stands and cries
“Yesss!!”, hidden under a veil.
