THE BLISSFUL DAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The day returns, my bosom burns
Last Line: It breaks my bliss, -- it breaks my heart.
Subject(s): Marriage; Weddings; Husbands; Wives

THE day returns, my bosom burns;
The blissful day we twa did meet;
Though winter wild in tempest toiled,
Ne'er summer sun was half sae sweet.
Than a' the pride that loads the tide,
And crosses o'er the sultry line, --
Than kingly robes, and crowns and globes,
Heaven gave me more; it made thee mine.
While day and night can bring delight,
Or nature aught of pleasure give, --
While joys above my mind can move,
For thee and thee alone I live;
When that grim foe of life below
Comes in between to make us part,
The iron hand that breaks our band,
It breaks my bliss, -- it breaks my heart.
