There came a Day at Summers full

 There came a Day at Summer's full,
Entirely for me --
I thought that such were for the Saints,
Where Resurrections -- be --

The Sun, as common, went abroad,
The flowers, accustomed, blew,
As if no soul the solstice passed
That maketh all things new --

The time was scarce profaned, by speech --
The symbol of a word
Was needless, as at Sacrament,
The Wardrobe -- of our Lord --

Each was to each The Sealed Church,
Permitted to commune this -- time --
Lest we too awkward show
At Supper of the Lamb.
The Hours slid fast -- as Hours will, Clutched tight, by greedy hands -- So faces on two Decks, look back, Bound to opposing lands -- And so when all the time had leaked, Without external sound Each bound the Other's Crucifix -- We gave no other Bond -- Sufficient troth, that we shall rise -- Deposed -- at length, the Grave -- To that new Marriage, Justified -- through Calvaries of Love --
