POEM OF THE DAY: The Bridal

by Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874 – 1942) .

  

The Bridal

 

Last night a pale young Moon was wed

Unto the amorous, eager Sea;

Her maiden veil of mist she wore

His kingly purple vesture, he.

 

With her a bridal train of stars                                        5

Walked sisterly through shadows dim,

And, master minstrel of the world,

The great Wind sang the marriage hymn.

 

Thus came she down the silent sky

Unto the Sea her faith to plight,                                  10

And the grave priest who wedded them

Was ancient, sombre-mantled Night.
