First Line: To-night the stars are wooing, love
Last Line: And dreams what loveliness thou art.
Subject(s): Love

TO-NIGHT the stars are wooing, love,
The moon is full of languishment;
Low in the eastern firmament
Little, the golden waves above --
My dreams are wand'ring pensive-wise
Unto the-bourne of echo-sighs
Beneath the stars, within the grove.
To-night the rose-leaves fell apart,
And at their core the sweet dews dwell,
While dreams of echo in the shell
Conjures the crimson-scented heart.
So, love, thy sweet influence steals
Upon me, and my spirit heals,
And dreams what loveliness thou art.
