Title: Fairy Nuptials

(part 5)

Across the hills and dales and woods,
the news spread far and wide
Titania`s fairy daughter
was going to be a bride.

Her name was Floribunda,
the family called her Fleur
and Oberon thought her wedding
might cause them quite a stir.

Queen Mab was mother of the groom,
he was her youngest son
she thought she should take over
and say how things were done.

Squabbles followed thick and fast
some compromises found,
everything was sorted out
except the bridal gown.

“Co-ordinating colours!”
the bride said, “Cuts a dash,
we must be very careful,
to make sure we don`t clash!”

“My Jonquil`s wearing lemon!”
Said Mab, “And I don`t think
the bride should be so adamant
about the colour, pink!”

“It is her special day, you know!”
Fleur`s mother said, offended
“If pink is what she likes to wear
then so should her intended!”

.Queen Mab`s partner, Clary
aware of all the strife
knew the source of trouble
was generally his wife.

He told the wizard, Merlot
and without hesitation,
he flew amongst the feudin` crowd
to offer mediation.

Merlot took a lovely flower
it`s fragrance was divine
in glowing pink and lemon,
a `Peace Rose`, quite sublime.

Through Merlot`s inspiration
the pink and lemon blended,
the bride and groom were happy
and so the friction ended.

The big day dawned, the bells rang out,
Through blossom scented air.
A joyous celebration
and `Peace` reigned everywhere.

The mothers of the bride and groom
became good friends again
while Oberon and Clary
drank toasts in pink champagne.
