Gypsy Rose Enchanteur - At the Wedding

Image Hosted by

A Hope Carol

A Night was near, a day was near,
Between a day and night
I heard sweet voices calling clear,
Calling me:
I heard a whirr of wing on wing,
But could not see the sight;
I long to see my birds that sing,
I long to see.

Below the stars, beyond the moon,
Between the night and day
I heard a rising falling tune
Calling me:
I long to see the pipes and strings
Whereon such minstrels play;
I long to see each face that sings,
I long to see.

To-day or may be not to-day,
To-night or not to-night,
All voices that command or pray
Calling me,
Shall kindle in my soul such fire
And in my eyes such light
That I shall see that heart's desire
I long to see.

No doubt, I love Dante Garbriel's art...says things I can't say myself - know what you mean.

I was very pleased with this combination. I genuinely felt that I captured Sibyl's more youthful grace and style and she does love a wedding.
