Bridal Song

Written by: John Gould Fletcher | Biography
 | Quotes (7) |
 CYNTHIA, to thy power and thee
 We obey.
Joy to this great company!
 And no day
Come to steal this night away
 Till the rites of love are ended,
And the lusty bridegroom say,
 Welcome, light, of all befriended!

Pace out, you watery powers below;
 Let your feet,
Like the galleys when they row,
 Even beat;
Let your unknown measures, set
 To the still winds, tell to all
That gods are come, immortal, great,
 To honour this great nuptial!
