hi, everyone. we’re planning to jump the broom at our wedding in a couple weeks, and i wanted a reading or chant or lyrics or a poem or SOMETHING for the minister to say to make it more special and to add more depth to the ritual. i’m very familiar with the following one, and it’s wonderful, but other friends have used it a number of times already and i was hoping to find something different this time for our wedding:
Dark an’ stormy may come de wedder
I jines dis he-male an’ dis she’male togedder.
Let none, but Him dat makes de thunder,
Put dis he-male and dis she-male asunder.
I darefor ‘nounce you bofe de same.
Be good, go ‘long, an’ keep up yo’ name.
De broomstick’s jumped, de world not wide.
She’s now yo’ own. Salute yo’ bride!
anyway, if any of you have any thoughts or any verse or thing you can refer me to, i would be much obliged!
take care —
