The Happy Husband

Oft, oft methinks, the while with Thee
I breath, as from the heart, thy dear
And dedicated name, I hear
A promise and a mystery,
A pledge of more than passing life,
Yea, in that very name of Wife!

A pulse of love, that ne'er can sleep!
A feeling that upbraids the heart
With hapiness beyond desert,
That gladness half requests to weep!
Nor bless I not the keener sense
And unalarming turbulance

Of transient joys, that ask no sting
From jealous fears, or coy denying;
Bur born beneath Love's brooding wing,
And into tenderness soon dying,
Wheel out their giddy moment, then
Resign the soul to love again; -

A more precipitated vein
Of notes, that eddy in the flow
Of smoothest song, they come, they go,
And leave their sweeter understrain
Its own sweet self - a love of Thee
That seems, yet cannot greater be!


Samual Taylor Coleridge . 1772-1834
