Oh Splendid City bathed in moon's clear light
From cliffs afar, an opalescent sight.
My lover waits within your walls so near
To window lit my heart bids me take flight!
But leave I must and to your strength commend,
My true-love in your fastness keep from plight.
'Til I return in glory draped and then
We two in ecstasy shall reunite.
Our limbs commingled, lips conjoined in kiss,
I pledge my sweet, oh! Soon to be the night
This comely bard your senses will delight
And once again our passions to ignite.
