MY BRIDE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My bride is a simple maiden
Last Line: Is the name of this bride of mine.
Subject(s): Brides; Love

MY Bride is a simple maiden,
And Love is her all -- her all;
But better is love in a garret
Than hate in a gilded hall.
And brighter than all the jewels
That flash on a monarch's brow, --
Ay! bright as the stars of heaven
Are the eyes of this bride, I trow.

When sorrows invest my bosom,
I look in her smiling face;
When friends like the snow have vanished,
I weep in her wild embrace:
The thrill of her glance is rapture,
The glow of her touch divine; --
And Poesy, darling Poesy,
Is the name of this bride of mine.
