Through the gates of the unreal, on whose rare and radiant
Flash unnumbered shades of beauty, fair as Eden ever wore.
And our lost loves walk and wander, by the. waters cool and
Till forgotten how the passions sweep their sorrow tempests
Come to me invisible charmer! from the shadows come
Night's dull silences are throbbing from the mountain to the
Flower and leaf nod tremulously to the wind's low lullaby;
Bird and bee, their Wings have folded__sweetly restful all
Summer woods have ceased their waltzing__hushed and
slumbrous all the land;
Only elfins dance and dally o'er the moon-bedizzened sand.
Through the dim and dewy midnight, coy enchanter, steal to
Steal from out thy mystic hiding, whether cloud or wave
Whether weird and witching moonbeam, or the vapor on
In thy chaste embrace enfold me, that my spirit:roam at will.
Where but blooms immortal brighter o'er some rare and ra-
And, from lute of unseen minstrel, music quiver evermore;
