Subject(s): Sleep

Far away,
As we hear
The song of wild swans winging
Through the day,
The thought of him, who is no more, comes ringing
On my ear.

Gentle fear
On the breast
Of my memory comes breaking,
Near and near,
As night winds' murmurous music waking
Seas at rest.

As the blest
Tearful eye
Sees the sun, behind the ocean,
Red i' th' west,
Grow pale, and in changing hues and fading motion
Wane and die:

So do I
Wake or dream
