At The Nuptial Altar

A girl in virgin white
An intangible essence
A trembling creature
Wantonly pure
At the nuptial altar
Bearing passions blush
Blooming on her cheeks
Belying her innocence
Her thoughts portraying
Through lustful overtones
The girl’s growing want
Then without regret
A kiss preludes
Innocent stripped away


From innocence to experience, the poem plots the emotional journey taken by a young girl during her marriage service.
