First Line: It was the tranquil hour
Last Line: Because we wished as one.
Subject(s): Dreams; Wishes


It was the tranquil hour
Of earth's expectancy,
When we lay on the Wishing Sands
Beside the sleeping sea.
We saw the scarlet moon rise
And light the pale grey land;
We heard the whisper of the tide,
The sighing of the sand.
I felt the ardent flutter
Your heart gave for delight;
You knew how earth is glad and hushed
Under the tent of night.
We dreamed the dream of lovers,
And told our dream to none;
And all that we desired came true,
Because we wished as one.
