THE royal sun has gone his gaudy way
Companionless, across the sapphire skies,
He sinks to rest with blood-shot fevered eyes,
While tyrant night, triumphant over day,
Yields soft submission to Diana's sway.
Now, silver-robed, the Goddess sleeping lies
And soothes the world with dreams of Paradise,
Sweet fantasies the sun would drive away.

I think, to-night, of songs that she would sing
In dream years gone, within her garden fair.
Ah, sweet the voice that joys of worlds could bring
To golden hours that knew not dross of care,
When years were few and love was crownèd king;
For youth knows not how long is love's despair.
