Facsimile reading

On coming across the facsimile of the above poem in Project Gutenberg
Complete edition files, I decided to post my reading of it, not knowing if
there was another copy by the author, a later one.

Then Came a Day -
At Summer`s full -
Entirely for me -
I thought that such were for the Saints -
When Ressurection - be -

The Sun - as common went abroad -
The flowers - accostumed -blew -
As if no soul - that solstice passed -
Which makes all Things - new -

The time was scarce - profaned by speech -
The falling of a word
Was needless - as at Sacrament -
The Wardrobe - of our Lord!

Each was to each - the Sealed Church -
Permitted to Commune this (underscored) time -
Lest we too Awkward show -
At Supper of "The Lamb" -

The hours slid fast -
As hours will -
Clutched tight -
By greedy hands -
So - faces on two Decks
Look back
Bound to opposing lands -

And so when all the time had leaked -
Without external sound -
Each found the other`s Crucifix -
We gave no other Bond -

Sufficient troth -
That we shall rise (underscored)-
Deposed - At lenght the Grave -
To that new Marriage -
Justified -
Through Calvaries - of Love!

A day of revelation came to me, and I am not a regular Christian.
Everything was normal. There was no sermon, symbol, or sacrament.
Everyone was included in the common Meal. Time moved quickly, though we
wanted it to last forever. And as we traded crucifixes (our token of
sacrificial love), I realized that I am secure in the knowledge of our
future union at death because of our loving sacrifices for each other.
