Like a laverock in the lift by Jean Ingelow.

Part 1 of 2.

It

’s we two, it’s we two for aye,
All the world, and we two, and Heaven be our stay!
Like a laverock in the lift, sing, O bonny bride!
All the world was Adam once, with Eve by his side.

What's the world, my lass, my love!—what can it do?
I am thine, and thou art mine; life is sweet and new.
If the world have missed the mark, let it stand by;
For we two have gotten leave, and once more will try.

    I really love this phrase "like a laverock in the lift". Laverock is the Scottish word for a lark. A wonderful little bird that sings. This phrase means to be like a laverock in the lift, perched up high in a tree or on a rock or maybe as it is flying and then to sing freely!
