CHAMBER MUSIC: 12, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: What counsel has the hooded moon
Last Line: For thee, sweet sentimentalist.
Subject(s): Sentimental; Love

What counsel has the hooded moon

Put in thy heart, my shyly sweet,

Of Love in ancient plenilune,

Glory and stars beneath his feet --

A sage that is but kith and kin

With the comedian Capuchin?

Believe me rather that am wise

In disregard of the divine,

A glory kindles in those eyes

Trembles to starlight. Mine, O Mine!

No more be tears in moon or mist
For thee, sweet sentimentalist.
