I hugged the great body of the night close to me, then closer.
The moon was round, and silvery pale;
Heaven held a horde of stars, challenging, challenging -- beyond --
Dear God, I would not lift Thy veil.

O, mystic night I cannot hold you close enough,
I am part of the moon in her pale white hood,
Part of the stars, the clouds, the silence beyond --
The veil is Thine -- I would not, if I could.
