Midsummer night, without a moon, but the stars
In a serene bright multitude were there,
Even the shyest ones, even the faint motes shining
Low in the north under the Little Bear.
When I have said "This tragic farce I play in
Has neither dignity, delight nor end,"
The holy night draws all its stars around me --
I am ashamed, I have betrayed my Friend.
