Dove in the Arch

Dove in the Arch

Cursed!
Be the father of the bride
Of the blacksmith who forged the iron for the axe
With which the woodsman hacked down the oak
From which the bed was carved
In which was conceived the great-grandfather
Of the man who was driving the carriage
In which your mother met your father.
