Her Sweet turn to leave the Homestead

Her Sweet turn to leave the Homestead

Her Sweet turn to leave the Homestead
Came the Darker Way
Carriages Be Sure and Guests too
But for Holiday

‘Tis more pitiful Endeavor
Than did Loaded Sea
O’er the Curls attempt to caper
It had cast away

Never Bride had such Assembling
Never kinsmen kneeled
To salute so fair a Forehead
Garland be indeed

Fitter Feet of Her before us
Than whatever Brow
Art of Snow or Trick of Lily
Possibly bestow

Of Her Father Whoso ask Her
He shall seek as high
As the Palm that serve the Desert
To obtain the Sky

Distance be Her only Motion
If ’tis Nay or Yes
Acquiescence or Demurral
Whosoever guess

He must pass the Crystal Angle
That obscure Her face
He must have achieved in person
Equal Paradise
