Bride's veil concealing beauty -
White mist unfolding light,
Groom's heart in restless longing -
Rays to pierce mist to bright.
She yearning herself to give -
A garden sacred locked.
He to hold her heart in his -
His love the key long sought.
Hers the shaking, clinging hand -
Close on the brink lies unknown.
His hers meets - comforting hand -
His arms to carry her home.
She a rose - shy, timid blooming,
To her bridegroom's gentle longing.
He a fire - quenchless burning,
To find her lips to his belonging.
