Mark's Eve

(St.). On St. Mark's Eve all persons fated to be married or to die pass, in procession, the church porch.

`Tis now,' replied the village belle, `St. Mark's mysterious eve.
... The ghosts of all whom Death shall doom
Within the coming year
In pale procession walk the gloom. ...

J. Montgomery.
