O Masquer, are you loth Love Sleep
Should kiss your eyelids close?
Yet, as you dance, the good earth-god
Takes thought for your repose.

Somewhere beneath the kindly dust,
Made sweet with thyme and rue,
Under a springing cypress-plant
A bed is made for you.

Dance on, and sing. But, softly weaned
From sunlight and from dew,
The great sad roses early die
To make the bed for you.
