A Bride Going

I stood amid the impassioned tumult

of rivers met and joined

in foam and roar

heading west, acquiring;

each lending its force to rush

downhill, to fulfill the course of its first collecting


Off, here and there small rivulet’s cast about to find their way


I watch beneath the breast-white moon

that reflects the greater light

yet in glory all its own


The stars draw their zodiac

and men cast their course

this midnight sky draws all thoughts

from earth to the celestial and bright unending, revealed


these many lights and small

one endless canvas illuminates the earth before the day

they demonstrate the sapphire thrown


these marvels all, float on

flow in joy, to meet

a calmer canopy, where storms shall cease

a purer sea, where all is peace

There is a Sunday conscience, as well as a Sunday coat; and those who make religion a secondary concern put the coat and conscience carefully by to put on only once a week. - Charles Dickens
