The anklets of the new bride

They danced with joy, a pair of silver anklets they were
Studded with tiny bright stones
Looking beautiful on the fair softness of the girl's legs

They were a gift from her mother-in-law to be
The first sign of her stepping into matrimony
Anklets that tinkled tenderly
And announced to everyone the wearer's joy

The joy of a new bride, that shines through her ruddy cheeks
The tremulous anticipation of finding joy in a stranger
Who was dearer than anyone she had touched or known.

It was her wedding night, she waited impatiently
For the smiling and laughing crowd to leave

Not a touch soothed her, not a smile met her eye
They made love in such a fashion
Not a flutter crossed her heart.
