SPRING NIGHT, by            
First Line: Pale moon-shafts strike the swiftly greening hills
Last Line: Nor be engulfed in fierce red fire of day!
Subject(s): Night; Bedtime


Pale moon-shafts strike the swiftly greening hills,
Here winds a luring flower-fragrant path;
Let us be brave and dare the pigmy wrath
Of tiny wood folk. Sparkling silver spills
In ever widening, always shimmering rills;
O, I would see it softly garment you,
Turn your bright eyes to dancing flames, ice-blue,
Wrap you about till mystic beauty fills

My vision with supreme exquisiteness.
Humbly I stand before your moon-wrought grace,
The fragile pureness of your hands I press,
And touch in reverence your white rose face.
O tender, shining hour, would you might stay,
Nor be engulfed in fierce red fire of day!
