PIERROT'S SONG (FOR A PICTURE BY DUGALD WALKER), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Lady, light in the east hangs low
Last Line: Another stanza for her sake!)
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.


(For a picture by Dugald Walker)

LADY, light in the east hangs low,
Draw your veils of dream apart,
Under the casement stands Pierrot
Making a song to ease his heart.
(Yet do not break the song too soon--
I love to sing in the paling moon.)

The petals are falling, heavy with dew,
The stars have fainted out of the sky,
Come to me, come, or else I too,
Faint with the weight of love will die.
(She comes--alas, I hoped to make
Another stanza for her sake!)
