The Moon Maiden's Song

Ernest Dowson

Sleep! Cast thy canopy 
   Over this sleeper's brain, 
Dim grow his memory, 
   When he wake again. 

Love stays a summer night, 
   Till lights of morning come; 
Then takes her winged flight 
   Back to her starry home. 

Sleep! Yet thy days are mine; 
   Love's seal is over thee: 
Far though my ways from thine, 
   Dim though thy memory. 

Love stays a summer night, 
   Till lights of morning come; 
Then takes her winged flight 
   Back to her starry home.
