Anyone know an amusing poem I can put in a wedding card? Lovely couple getting married Saturday, I would like to add something light hearted to the usual greetings.

May the best ye've ever seen
Be the worst ye'll ever see.
May a moose ne'er leave yer girnal
Wi ' a tear drap in his e'e.
May ye aye keep hale an' herty
Till ye're auld eneuch tae dee.
May ye aye be jist as happy
As we wish ye aye tae be.

May the best you've ever seen
Be the worst you'll ever see.
May a mouse never leave your girnal*
With a teardrop in his eye.
May you always keep hale and hearty
Till you're old enough to die.
May you always be just as happy
As we wish you always to be.

*A girnal is a storage chest for meal and oats.

I googled this one because I couldn't remember it all, here it is I hope you like it.
And here's the advice my mother gave me on my wedding day, "remember, your husband is always right, even when he's wrong". It has stood me in good stead. grin
