Fifty years is the gold standard of marriages. Anyone who can live and love one another through fifty years of good and hard times deserves all the accolades they can get. Fifty years after you have said I do, you owe it to yourself to do something really special. One of the best things you should consider doing to help commemorate this very special day is having a 50th wedding anniversary poem composed for you. Not only will the poem be a special way to honor your fifty years of love and devotion, by having one written, you’ll be giving a gift that no one can possibly duplicate.
Finding a Poet
The most important thing to keep in mind when you decide that you want to have a 50th wedding anniversary poem penned for your spouse is to make sure the person who will be doing the work, won’t be writing a generic poem. Your love’s unique, and you want a poem that will reflect you and your spouse as a couple. If you wanted a generic poem you could select one that was written by one of the great poets like Frost, Poe, or Tennyson. You should be suspicious of any poet who doesn’t want to know something about your fifty years of marriage before they agree to the writing project.
Try out the 50th Wedding Anniversary Poem before Buying it
Most people who give their spouse a 50th wedding anniversary poem plan on reading the poem out loud at the anniversary party so that their friends and family can hear and appreciate the poem. Before you agree to purchase the poem from the poet, you’re going to want to read it out loud. In addition to making sure that the poem has a nice romantic feel and a pleasing cadence, that you’re easily able to pronounce all the words. If the poem isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, the poet should agree to keep trying until you’re happy with it.
Consider Writing Your Own 50th Wedding Anniversary Poem
If you’re one of the lucky ones who has a knack for words, and finds that you have the ability to put your feelings to paper, by all means you should write your very own 50th wedding anniversary poem, after all, no one knows your spouse better than you do. The fact that you took the time to pen the poem yourself will be something that your entire family will admire. Chance will be good that everyone will request a copy of the poem and that the original will become an important family heirloom. The most important thing to remember when it comes to composing your very own poem will be to write from the heart. As long as you do that, you can’t go wrong.
