Walks forth to marriage yonder gentle queen;
What chaste sobriety whene'er she speaks,
What glad content sits smiling on her cheeks;
What plans of goodness in that bosom glow,
What prudent cure is throned upon her brow,
What tender truth in all she does or says,
What pleasantness and peace in all her ways!
Forever blooming on that cheerful face,
Home's best affections grow divine in grace;
Her eyes are rayed with love, serene and bright;
Charity wreathes her lips with smiles of light;
Her kindly voice hath music in its notes;
And Heaven's own atmosphere around her floats!
