Felicitations: Double Wedding

Double Wedding
Nell and Cecily, loving each other,
Said to Ferdinand, Nell's older brother,
"Please be there when we're tying the knot."
He replied, just as quick as a shot,
"If you'll come on the fifteenth of June
When I'm marrying Peter at noon."

Double Wedding is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
