    Somehow, I find the lamp on top of the groom quite distracting. Also
    the pillar seems to be grown from the bride head. The bride's laugh looks charming though. Anyway, just my view of the photo.

    Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms

    Believe me, if all those endearing young charms,
    Which I gaze on so fondly today,
    Were to change by tomorrow, and fleet in my arms,
    Like fairy-gifts fading away,
    Thou wouldst still be adored, as this moment thou art,
    Let thy loveliness fade as it will,
    And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
    Would entwine itself verdantly still.

    It is not while beauty and youth are thine own,
    And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear
    That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known,
    To which time will but make thee more dear;
    No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
    But as truly loves on to the close,
    As the sunflower turns on her god, when he sets,
    The same look which she turned when he rose.

    Thomas Moore (17791852)

    Burning Drift-Wood

    Before my drift-wood fire I sit,
    And see, with every waif I burn,
    Old dreams and fancies coloring it,
    And folly's unlaid ghosts return.

    O ships of mine, whose swift keels cleft
    The enchanted sea on which they sailed,
    Are these poor fragments only left
    Of vain desires and hopes that failed?

    Did I not watch from them the light
    Of sunset on my towers in Spain,
    And see, far off, uploom in sight
    The Fortunate Isles I might not gain?

    Did sudden lift of fog reveal
    Arcadia's vales of song and spring,
    And did I pass, with grazing keel,
    The rocks whereon the sirens sing?

    Have I not drifted hard upon
    The unmapped regions lost to man,
    The cloud-pitched tents of Prester John,
    The palace domes of Kubla Khan?

    Did land winds blow from jasmine flowers,
    Where Youth the ageless Fountain fills?
    Did Love make sign from rose blown bowers,
    And gold from Eldorado's hills?

    Alas! the gallant ships, that sailed
    On blind Adventure's errand sent,
    Howe'er they laid their courses, failed
    To reach the haven of Content.

    And of my ventures, those alone
    Which Love had freighted, safely sped,
    Seeking a good beyond my own,
    By clear-eyed Duty piloted.

    O mariners, hoping still to meet
    The luck Arabian voyagers met,
    And find in Bagdad's moonlit street,
    Haroun al Raschid walking yet,

    Take with you, on your Sea of Dreams,
    The fair, fond fancies dear to youth.
    I turn from all that only seems,
    And seek the sober grounds of truth.

    What matter that it is not May,
    That birds have flown, and trees are bare,
    That darker grows the shortening day,
    And colder blows the wintry air!

    The wrecks of passion and desire,
    The castles I no more rebuild,
    May fitly feed my drift-wood fire,
    And warm the hands that age has chilled.

    Whatever perished with my ships,
    I only know the best remains;
    A song of praise is on my lips
    For losses which are now my gains.

    Heap high my hearth! No worth is lost;
    No wisdom with the folly dies.
    Burn on, poor shreds, your holocaust
    Shall be my evening sacrifice!

    Far more than all I dared to dream,
    Unsought before my door I see;
    On wings of fire and steeds of steam
    The world's great wonders come to me,

    And holier signs, unmarked before,
    Of Love to seek and Power to save,
    The righting of the wronged and poor,
    The man evolving from the slave;

    And life, no longer chance or fate,
    Safe in the gracious Fatherhood.
    I fold o'er-wearied hands and wait,
    In full assurance of the good.

    And well the waiting time must be,
    Though brief or long its granted days,
    If Faith and Hope and Charity
    Sit by my evening hearth-fire's blaze.

    And with them, friends whom Heaven has spared,
    Whose love my heart has comforted,
    And, sharing all my joys, has shared
    My tender memories of the dead,

    Dear souls who left us lonely here,
    Bound on their last, long voyage, to whom
    We, day by day, are drawing near,
    Where every bark has sailing room.

    I know the solemn monotone
    Of waters calling unto me;
    I know from whence the airs have blown
    That whisper of the Eternal Sea.

    As low my fires of drift-wood burn,
    I hear that sea's deep sounds increase,
    And, fair in sunset light, discern
    Its mirage-lifted Isles of Peace.

    John Greenleaf Whittier (18071892)
