AT THE WEDDING MARCH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: God with honour hang your head
Last Line: Deals triumph and immortal years.
Subject(s): Love; Love - Marital; Marriage; Wedded Love; Marriage - Love; Weddings; Husbands; Wives

GOD with honour hang your head,
Groom, and grace you, bride, your bed
With lissome scions, sweet scions,
Out of hallowed bodies bred.

Each be other's comfort kind:
Deep, deeper than divined,
Divine charity, dear charity,
Fast you ever, fast bind.

Then let the March tread our ears:
I to him turn with tears
Who to wedlock, his wonder wedlock,
Deals triumph and immortal years.
