Here’s to the breadth of beauty,
E’er that grace’d a poet’s eye,
Thus here’s to our timeless love
That surpasses earth and sky!
Our love doth shine everlasting,
As tomorrow is unfurled,
But today we light the darkness  
Of Hell’s benight’d world!
 
Here’s to the touch of majesty,
As thusly we embrace;
Here’s to the mirth and magic
That doth upon us grace!
Our love is evermore a-twinkle,    
Akin to starry nights unfurled,
Thus we illuminate the darkness
Of Hell’s benight’d world!
 
Here’s to the breadth of beauty,
Though be the darkness nigh,
And here’s to the voice of love
That surpasses earth and sky!
Our love is of the firmament,
Where vastness is unfurled,
Thus we light the darkness
Of Hell’s benight’d world!

The poet makes visible the truth, beauty and wisdom that is concealed. My take on this nice poem.
