THE TALE OF TWO WHO WAITED

Here's an insightful poem from motivator Zig Ziglar. If you know the poet (assuming it's not Zig), please post a comment so credit can be given. For more Zig, visit Spark Insight.

The Bride of White Hair

The bride white of hair,
stooped over her chair,
her legs uncertain beneath her.
Across the church aisle,
with a big toothless smile,
the groom in his wheelchair came riding.
Who is this couple to be wed?
You'll find if you closely explore it,
that this is that rare,
most conservative pair,
who waited till they could afford it.

I'm 98% certain that this wonderful poem was written by the late humorist Richard Armour.
