Each tree

Who can enjoy alone?

To the nuptial bower
  I led her, blushing like the morn; all Heaven,
    And happy constellations on that hour
      Shed their selected influence; the earth
        Gave sign of gratulation, and each hill;
          Joyous the birds; fresh gales and gentle airs
            Whisper'd it to the woods, and from their wings
              Flung rose, flung odours from the spicy shrub.

  Those thousand decencies that daily flow
    From all her words and actions.

A smile that glow'd
  Celestial rosy red, love's proper hue.

Take heed lest passion sway
  Thy judgment to do aught, which else free will
