SHEATHED by the everlasting sky
That bends caressing from on high
In garments blent
Of white and blue,
And fairer, farther, fainter hue,
The silent lake lies musing and is well content.

Calm child-of-many-waters, dream!
Sudden across thy breast shall gleam
A wave-kissed way
Of floating gold,
Fixed skyward with a steadfast hold,
Whereon an angel lingering may kneel and pray.
