Second Wife

February 21, 2018

 

The bride greets her husband’s children
at their door

The husband hands each child a lily
He hands the bride hard candy
He folds his arms as they exchange
these gifts

The wife will make dinner
while the children play
The children will wash dishes
while the wife sews
