ON A COMPOSER'S WEDDING

WITH nuptial tones' to discord ne'er descending
   In union may your notes' and lives' be found,
Connubial bliss' with bridal music blending
In unison of melodies unending -
   Love's antiphons from heart to heart resound;
To loftier harmonies of hopes attain,
   And as your chant of life hymeneal rolls,
May hymns of concord rise in chiming strain -
Earth's joy-rung chords attuned to Heaven's refrain,
   In symphony of love-concerted souls.
