The Wedding - Poem by Sidney Lanier

O marriage-bells, your clamor tells
Two weddings in one breath.
SHE marries whom her love compels:
-- And I wed Goodman Death!
My brain is blank, my tears are red;
Listen, O God: -- "I will," he said: --
And I would that I were dead.
Come groomsman Grief and bridesmaid Pain
Come and stand with a ghastly twain.
My Bridegroom Death is come o'er the meres
To wed a bride with bloody tears.
Ring, ring, O bells, full merrily:
Life-bells to her, death-bells to me:
O Death, I am true wife to thee!

    Truly a much complicated composition as an institutional access called Wedding. Yet, characters are many within the emotional intelligence. Sometimes emerges the passion of penetration, sometimes deviating from the crude line of making -love. Death, undoubtedly the hero of all hankerings. Poet tries to establish with strong metaphor. And again, yet, a line touches me as a poem many times does the same........

    To wed a bride with bloody tears.

    It spells as the war begins for the past to snatch the beauty from the present.
