'Twas a long Parting-but the time
For Interview-had Come-
Before the Judgment Seat of God-
The last-and second time

These Fleshless Lovers met-
A Heaven in a Gaze-
A Heaven of Heavens-the Privilege
Of one another's Eyes-

No Lifetime-on Them-
Appareled as the new
Unborn-except They had beheld-
Born infiniter-now-

Was Bridal-e'er like This?
A Paradise-the Host-
And Cherubim-and Seraphim-
The unobtrusive Guest-
