A Fall Wedding As Lovely As A Tree- Kilmer's Wedding Cocktail Hour Music Inspiralations


A Fall Wedding, as lovely as poet Joyce Kilmer's “Trees” inspires relations. Hence the word, “inspiralations” can be attributed to the inspirations of beautiful covenant relations found in weddings.

Let us enjoy her beautiful poem.


I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

Joyce Kilmer

Here are a few inspiralations for a musical Fall Wedding Cocktail Hour as lovely as a tree.

A tone of warmth and echo can begin as your Wedding Cocktail Hour entertainer chooses their song. Often slow but swaying steady as each musical passage entreats the next passage. The obvious I would encourage are songs with lyrical themes of Northern forests or high forested mountains. Nothing fast paced or bumpy.

A second musical inspiralation can build the homestead perspective that the nuptial couple will jointly soon begin. Here are numerous songs that can involve a sense of warmth and comfort. A soft circular repetitive piece that always comes back home to the main theme. Nothing brassy or overbearing but instead a main theme of musical rest.

My favorite poetic inspiralation is “Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain.”

This brilliant poetic line truly inspires the intimacy that any Fall wedding celebration should have. Lyrical content and also musical devices can be used if they kindle a sense of falling into her arms of caring and sustenance. Experimental sketches with varied musical instruments and sounds should be representation of the bride.

And it is the Fall beautiful bride that mirrors Kilmer's “Trees.” Extending her arms in the transitory evolution of love is the best musical theme which can top off the Wedding Cocktail Hour. A moderate up tempo piece ending opposite with what began the set; a decrescendo with a tone of warmth and echo.

The age old adage asks, “If a tree fell in the forest, would you hear it.”

The Fall Wedding Cocktail Hour musicale answers emphatically, Yes!.

When she falls for him in the wedding bliss of love.
