The Offering - Poem by William Bell Scott

AFTER THE ANTIQUE.

Hera, Athene, Cypria, great three,
Take these for all your care of me:—
A golden garland fair,
My longest braid of hair,
My bridal zone so rare.
Small gifts are these to represent
The ten years' guerdons ye have sent,—
A husband loved and sure,
A peaceful life and pure,
Male children on the floor.
