WEDDED (1), by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: They leave their love-lorn haunts
Last Line: Dead, strayed, to love-strange lover.
Subject(s): Love; Soldiers' Writings

They leave their love-lorn haunts,
Their sigh-warm floating Eden;
And they are mute at once,
Mortals by God unheeden,
By their past kisses chidden.

But they have kist and known
Clear things we dim by guesses --
Spirit to spirit grown:
Heaven, born in hand-caresses .
Love, fall from sheltering tresses.

And they are dumb and strange:
Bared trees bowed from each other.
Their last green interchange
What lost dreams shall discover?
Dead, strayed, to love-strange lover.
