More free by far is the wild night jar
In the dreamy even
Than eagle fleet in its mountain beat
With gold in the heaven.

Sweet the note from the nightingale's throat
In the listening even;
Sweet to sense the happy cadence
That day is not given.

Ah, Child of Night, breathe you delight
'Mid the festive vision,
And give to day the vesture gay
That day is not given.
