Swiftly walk over the western wave,
Spirit of Night!
Out. of the misty eastern cave,
Where, all the long and lone daylight.
Thou wovest dreams of joy and fear
Which made thee terrible and dear
Swift be thy flight!
Wrap thy form in a mai~le gray,
Blind with thine hair the eyes of Day
Kiss her until she be wearied out;
Then wander o'er city and sea and
Touching all with thy opiate wand
Come, long-sought!l
When I arose and saw the dawn,
I sighed for thee!
When light rode high and the dew
w'as gone,
And noon lay heavy on flower and
And the weary Day turn'd to her rest,
Lingering like an unloved guest,
I sighed for thee!
Thy brother Death came, and cried,
"Wouldst thou me?"
Thv sweet child Sleep, the filmy-eyed,
Murmured like a noontide bee,
"Shall I nestle near thy side?
Wouuldit thou me?" And I replied,
'No, not thet!"c
Death will come when thou art dead,
Soon, too soon!
Sleep will come wheni thou art fled;
Of neither would I' ask the boon
I ask of thee, beloved Night -
Swvift be thine approaching flight,
Come soon, soon!
