dylan thomas – on the marriage of a virgin lyrics

waking alone in a mult-tude of loves when morning’s light
surprised in the opening of her nightlong eyes
his golden yesterday asleep upon the iris
and this day’s sun leapt up the sky out of her thighs
was miraculous virginity old as loaves and fishes,
though the moment of a miracle is unending lightning
and the shipyards of galilee’s footprints hide a navy of
doves.

no longer will the vibrations of the sun desire on
her deepsea pillow where once she married alone,
her heart all ears and eyes, lips catching the avalanche
of the golden ghost who ringed with his streams her
mercury bone,
who under the lids of her windows hoisted his golden
luggage,
for a man sleeps where fire leapt down and she learns
through his arm
that other sun, the jealous coursing of the unrivalled
blood.
