The Day that I was crowned

The Day that I was crowned

The Day that I was crowned
Was like the other Days
Until the Coronation came
And then ’twas Otherwise

As Carbon in the Coal
And Carbon in the Gem
Are One and yet the former
Were dull for Diadem

I rose, and all was plain
But when the Day declined
Myself and It, in Majesty
Were equally adorned

The Grace that I was chose
To Me surpassed the Crown
That was the Witness for the Grace
‘Twas even that ’twas Mine
