Ample Make This Bed.

Ample make this bed.
Make this bed with awe;
In it wait till judgment break
Excellent and fair.

Be its mattress straight,
Be its pillow round;
Let no sunrise' yellow noise
Interrupt this ground.

A computer reading this just ruins it. Hear you can here the poem in a touching context. https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=uGeqdYTaZbs&feature=youtu.be
.....beautiful, sometimes one must take charge ★
Very nice poem. I love the way she uses punctuation. So beautiful.
I have only just recently heard this poem, quoted in the film of 'Sophie's Choice', and it was so utterly apt, read over the deathbed of Sophie and Nathan, which was the only marriage-bed those two tortured people could ever have. A tragic but beautiful moment in the film, and the poem was a wonderful elegy.
