Don & Stina's Wedding: 6.5.11

Wedding Poem

This is the poem that Mikaila, Stina’s Niece read at the wedding.

Don & Stina, Stina & Don
A variation of a “Hammer” poem

Wherever Don is, there’s Stina too,
There’s always Stina and Don.
Wherever she goes, he’s going too,
“Off to the water today?” he asks:
“Yes, for a paddle while the weather lasts,”
“Let’s go together,” says Don, says he.
“Let’s go together,” says he.

“Want to go out?” said he to she.
“Out where?” said she to he.
“I think a hike sounds good to me.”
“Just what I think myself,” said she.
“It’s hard to think of what to do,
But you choose so well,” said Stina, said she.
“You choose so well,” said she

“Let’s meet my family,” said she to he.
“Yes, let’s,” said he to she.
They went to her Aunt’s for lutefisk and crab
“These folks of yours,” said Don, “Not bad”
“As soon as I saw their faces I knew.
They’re part of you,” said Don, said he.
“They’re part of you,” said he.

“Let’s marry each other,” said he to she.
“Yes, let’s!,” said she to he.
“I’m not afraid to marry you”
They both stood up and said “I do”
“Husband and wife” and off they flew.
“I wasn’t afraid,” said Stina, said she,
“I’m never afraid with you,” said she.

So wherever Don is, there’s Stina too,
There’s always Stina and Don.
Said she to he, “What would I do?”
“If it wasn’t for you,” and Don said: “True,
It isn’t much fun for One, but Two,
Can stick together, says Don, says he.
“That’s how it is,” says he.
