The Bridal Song
By Francis Beaumont (1584–1616)
PEACE and silence be the guide
  To the man and to the bride!
If there be a joy yet new
In marriage, let it fall on you,
  That all the world may wonder!        5
If we should stay, we should do worse,
And turn our blessing to a curse
  By keeping you asunder.
