To midnight, from June,
Stands on lower part of mysterious one months.
That vapor and the dew of the anesthesia which is vague
Comes into bearing, from her golden rim emits
And, softly at the outside, falling little by little exactly,
Is quite and buys and with the valley which is universal
With music in the normality, to make become sleepy and steals.
With maul nods to the grave; Lily in green onion lolls;
About it breast protecting the fog,
The downcast rots at remainder;
Like Lethe and seem, see!
The light sleep which has a lake ceremony
Had and, respects the world, under is awake
Boil did not do the thing.
All beautiful sleep! - And lo! With her fate joins in,
Fraud Irene, in the place!
Original Poem (excerpt)
At midnight, in the month of June,
I stand beneath the mystic moon.
An opiate vapor, dewy, dim,
Exhales from out her golden rim,
And, softly dripping, drop by drop,
Upon the quiet mountain top,
Steals drowsily and musically
Into the universal valley.
The rosemary nods upon the grave;
The lily lolls upon the wave;
Wrapping the fog about its breast,
The ruin moulders into rest;
Looking like Lethe, see! the lake
A conscious slumber seems to take,
And would not, for the world, awake.
All Beauty sleeps! — and lo! where lies
Irene, with her Destinies!
