I came across this poem this morning whilst researching my new book. Zig Ziglar recited it in one of his famous sales books. Whilst he used it as an example of a way to overcome sales objections regarding cost, it struck a chord with me about life in general. Sometimes we all wait too long to do the things we really need to do. Enjoy.
The Bride, white of hair, is stooped over her cane,
Her footsteps uncertainly guiding.
While down the opposite aisle,
With a wan, toothless smile,
The bridgegroom, in wheelchair, come riding.
Now who is this elderly couple thus wed?
Well you’ll find when you’ve closely explored it,
That here is the rare
Most conservative pair
Who waited till they could afford it.
The poem is by Ogden Nash
