Moonlight, and shadows of leaves
On the white wall above me --
The shadows gallop and swirl without sound.
Blue moonlight, brief shadows of leaves,
And once more I see you,
Saying aloud, like a dreamer, "You love me,
You love me!"

Moonlight . . . down there in the garden
I know, without seeing,
The somnolent fountain is filled with blue fire.
I close my eyes, I pursue you
Through dream's fainter moonlight,
Ghostlike, with shadows of dead leaves, silently
Fleeing.
