Here In Lordly Comfort Gathered (A Marriage)

Poem by Gabriel SimpsonLaw

Here in lordly comfort gathered, possess’ed now of joyful mind
Sheltered from the blasts of winter, let all here in hope combine
For this man and woman dear, esteem’ed, in affection held
As they journey forth in concert of their mutual love compelled

Daughter of this noble island, son of that great southern land
Forward now in love supporting to the future fate hath planned
May your path roll out before you, gentle through the trees to curl
View you now a bounteous garden rare as the flying years unfurl

Let not storm nor man affect thee, guard against exterior force
Countenance no interference be it subtle planned or coarse
But keep a peaceful fortress round you, bright her light and strong her walls
Harried not by life’s afflictions, fast, secure within its halls

We may all in terms of fortune hard consider what we gain
Love as only love is given during this our mortal reign
Value this above all other, things possessed are mean indeed
Things possessed do not return love, love and freedom be your creed

To E & N, all love
