First Line: Give me a night in june that's clear and quiet
Last Line: With half my spirit in a wonder-trance.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Self; Trances

Give me a night in June that's clear and quiet,
That I may stare at Heaven until I see
Her face all twitching to her farthest star –
Conscious of one true man's idolatry.

I stare at dewdrops till they close their eyes,
I stare at grass till all the world is green;
I stare at rainbows all their precious life,
Till nothing's left to prove what I have seen.

I stare at Robin Redbreast on his bough,
Till he comes down with many a pretty dance:
I stare at my own Self, and walk the earth
With half my spirit in a wonder-trance.
