There came a Day at Summer’s full

There came a Day at Summer’s full,
Entirely for me
I thought that such were for the Saints,
Where Resurrections be

The Sun, as common, went abroad,
The flowers, accustomed, blew,
As if no soul the solstice passed
That maketh all things new

The time was scarce profaned, by speech
The symbol of a word
Was needless, as at Sacrament,
The Wardrobe of our Lord

Each was to each The Sealed Church,
Permitted to commune this time
Lest we too awkward show
At Supper of the Lamb.

The Hours slid fast as Hours will,
Clutched tight, by greedy hands
So faces on two Decks, look back,
Bound to opposing lands

And so when all the time had leaked,
Without external sound
Each bound the Other’s Crucifix
We gave no other Bond

Sufficient troth, that we shall rise
Deposed at length, the Grave
To that new Marriage,
Justified through Calvaries of Love
