Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LXXXIX


GIVEN in marriage unto thee,
  Oh, thou celestial host!
Bride of the Father and the Son,
  Bride of the Holy Ghost!
  
Other betrothal shall dissolve,        5
  Wedlock of will decay;
Only the keeper of this seal
  Conquers mortality.
