One here stands, a lonely pillar
Strong and straight and smooth and tall,
Firm as statue’s stone, yet stiller,
Bearing, lest the temple fall.
One there stands, a lovely lily,
White yet red yet blue yet all,
Blossom beauteous in the hilly,
Flower feeling for its call.
One sees one, and one the other,
Two see one, both find a lover.
One steps forward, one responds,
Two engage, and then the bonds.
One steps forth, and joins the union
Three made two and two made one,
Love unending in communion,
‘Til the day when all is won.
