by Robert Seymour Bridges (1844 - 1930)

Since we loved, ‑ (the earth that shook
Language: English 
Since we loved, - (the earth that shook
As we kissed, fresh beauty took) -
Love hath been as poets paint,
Life as heaven is to a saint;

All my joys my hope excel,
All my work hath prosper'd well,
All my songs have happy been,
O my love, my life, my queen.
