The meeting, the courtship, the wedding and the honeymoon have all now been completed.Having got this far the real journey lays before every married couple seeking the love, stability, support and joys of a long-term relationship. The state of the newly-weds is now at hand. The meeting of minds and the living together can become a source of friction or ignition to a deeper understanding. Physically the very first blush of lust and desire is replaced by an understanding that life and our own biological and emotional clocks, for some, may now require that children be brought into the mix and families raised.Yes, that interlude when the bliss of being a newly-wed - announced and seen as such to a wider society - really doesn't last that long. Time to savour the days and nights of love's sweet wonder.Our classic poets, of course, have much to say and advise on. With the storied likes of Christopher Marlowe, Khalil Gibran, Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and even George Orwell then the listener is in wise and knowing hands.01 - Poems for Newly-Weds - An Introduction02 - On Marriage by Khalil Gibran03 - I Am Not Yours by Sara Teasdale04 - Love is Not All (Sonnet XXX) by Edna St Vincent Millay05 - A Bridal Toast by James Madison Bell06 - Wedding Song by Jehudah Halevi07 - Epithalamion by James Elroy Flecker08 - Epithalamion by Gerard Manley Hopkins09 - Wedding Day by Edith Nesbit10 - Rose of All the World by D H Lawrence11 - Wedded by Isaac Rosenberg12 - He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven by W B Yeats13 - A Bridal Song by John Ford14 - To My Dear and Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet15 - An Extract of the Wife's Will by Charlotte Bronte16 - Sonnet to My Wife by Thomas Hood17 - To a Husband by Anne Kingsmill Finch18 - On Love by Khalil Gibran19 - Two Lovers by George Eliot20 - Love's Unity by Alfred Austin21 - Spiritual Love by Alfred Austin22 - The Definition of Love by Andrew Marvell23 - Sonnet 116 - Let Me Not to the Marriage of True Minds by William Shakespeare24 - To The Beloved by Alice Meynell25 - Beloved by Hafiz26 - Vice Vearsa by Ambrose Bierce27 - Romance by George Orwell28 - Mutual Forebearance.
