Subject(s): Moon


Now by the deepening primrose of the sky,
Now by the pale moth's flight,
Soon over far-off eastern hills that lie
Blue-veiled in mystery, the moon will pour
Her flood of silver light.

I who have watched with you that silver tide
Whiten the valley floor
Outspread beneath this dream-set garden-side,
Where lilies sleep, -- can bear to watch alone
The rising moon no more.
