To dream -- and so to watch the wan moon glimmer
Along, across, and down the throbbing sky
To drown beneath a sea where strange lights shimmer
And old forgotten things awake and cry.

To dream -- and thus to feel the moments turning
Their instant paths along the surging flood
That beats and fills the body with its burning,
The dark remembered madness of the blood.

To dream -- and so to feel the moon and madness
Kaleidoscope across the sunken brain --
To find no lone oasis bright with gladness,
But only waste and molten sky and pain!
