SHINING THROUGH

Jane had been watching
Dramas on TV.
It seemed they were full
Of violence and misery,
Infidelity, deception,
Drunken woes.
The women wearing
Fashionable clothes.

Car chases, screaming brakes
And skids.
Divorces and the battles
Over kids.
Then changing channels
To ITV:
A royal wedding
So beautiful to see.

Jane found escape to watch
Vows exchanged
By the young ones
As arranged.
And though one, is
Royalty,
She is not so different
From you and me.

Perhaps their obvious
Good health
Is connected to a
Fabulous wealth.
But Jane who gives a lot to life
Knows the riches
Of being a loving wife.

Though far removed from dramas
On TV
And the glamour of
celebrity
She wishes this young
Couple well:
For they love each other;
Jane can tell.
