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!

    Highly dramatic and tragic. Poem with a classic touch. Thanks. Look how the drama unfolds:

    Beautiful - and sad! I well remember Sidney and Jean Lanier, here in Spain, in the early 70´s. We were good friends. (Report) Reply
