Earth Day Wedding Ceremony

Earth Day Marriage Ceremony

                            In this eco-community I thee wed

                            The earthlings now join a garden bed

                            To have, to hold, to honour and love

                            To reduce, recycle and stand above

                            Neglect, abuse and thoughtlessness

                           And embrace the oath of reusefulness.

                           Pledging to uphold basic common sense

                           Truly the seedling to making a difference

                           A difference to our holy Mother Earth

                           And to all that she is worthy and worth.

                           The pledges between the two betrothed

                           Do indeed signify a huge workload

                           For better or worse the vows do say

                           There just is no other better way.
