MarianDo you weep behind your veil, Golden Bride,Marian7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
for knowing there is someone else, close, unseen?
And while the groom is tall and strong, what of that
when there is sunshine in the smile of Boy in Green?
He cannot be with you today although he is
the rightful master of your heart, steady and true.
The groom whose eyes are pale and searching, desperate,
needs you more it seems, for shame, and so I Do.
Do not weep behind your veil Watcher fair;
soon will come the sunlight wedding of your prayer.
