The Moon Maidens Song

Written by: Ernest Dowson | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 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.
