MOONLIGHT IN MAY, by            
First Line: When run his circuit long and bright
Last Line: Around thy solemn, silent throne.
Subject(s): Moon

WHEN run his circuit long and bright,
The sun his ardour doth arrest;
And plunging down conceals his light
In the dark purple of the West.

The earth no more is scorched with heat,
With bloom and verdure overpowers;
And evening, with its rosy feet,
Advances, leading back the flowers.

Beneath the shades that darker grow,
The hills in vaguer form you view;
The light that sheds a fainter glow
Tinges with brown the heaven's blue.

Come, wished-for Moon, no longer hide;
Ascend the heavens, pale and lone;
The peaceful evening hours guide
Around thy solemn, silent throne.
