Offsite Post: ‘Cousin Payne’s Wedding’


There you stand Payne Murphy,

Beneath the thick bough of an ancient oak,

With Allyson, the answer

To your heart’s yearning,

Glowing beautifully in the late evening sun,

As a bride shall do.

But in that holy moment,

The two of you before the minister,

Your own Uncle Boyd,

Transformed in a mystery

From an individual man and woman

Into husband and wife –

One flesh – in Jesus Christ,

There around you also stand

The souls of Percy Murphy,

Raiford, James, many forebears

Of our family, looking with hope and joy

Upon their offspring,

Now growing to maturity.

The future rests upon your shoulders,

And upon all the youthful generation –

The future of our family, the future of the Church,

The future of the Southern people.

 . . .

The rest is at


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
