... The rest
Of our life must be a palimpsest—
The old writing written there the best.

In the parchment hoary
Lies a golden story,
As 'mid secret feathers of a dove,
As 'mid moonbeams shifted through a cloud.

Let us write it over,
O my lover,
For the far time to discover,
As 'mid secret feathers of a dove,
As 'mid moonbeams shifted through a cloud.
