A Lovely Refrain

She yielded herself to each caress--

Her brown eyes glowed softly bright;

Her very self spoke, "happiness"--

And tender was the night.

We had vowed to each our love,

And true we would remain.

With union blessed by God, above,

Our life would be a lovely refrain.

As we united to be as one,

There was little to be said,

For, in our lives, God's will was done

In the night that we were wed.
