Kathleen Raine
He has married me with a ring, a ring of bright water
Whose ripples spread from the heart of the sea,
He has married me with a ring of light, the glitter
Broadcast on the swift river.
Raine quotes
In rose with petals soft as air
I bind for you the tides and fire
the death that lives within the flower,
oh, gladly love, for you I bear.
Intent on one great love, perfect,
Requited and for ever,
I missed love's everywhere
Small presence, thousand-guised.
