The railings cast a shadow on the pavement as I stroll,
Changing into exotic fruits each metal whirl and scroll.

'Are you suited?' her mother said, with a note of doubt in her voice;
'Are you sure, my darling, that you've made a really good choice?'
'I love him, Mother' the girl replied 'That's all I need to know!
And I'm absolutely certain that our love will grow and grow!'
'That's all very well' said Mother ' Romance doesn't always last!
Think carefully, my darling, before the die is cast.
You need to be in step as you traverse Life's stony ground!
It pays not to be hasty! At least that's what I've found!'
But they went ahead and married, with all the trimmings, too,
Feeling positively certain that their love was strong and true.
I passed them, jogging in Sydney, only the other day.
They showed the shot to Mother;
There was nothing she could say.
