To the Autumnal Moon


Mild Splendour of the various-vested Night!

Mother of wildly-working visions! hail!

I watch thy gliding, while with watery light

Thy weak eye glimmers through a fleecy veil;

And when thou lovest thy pale orb to shroud

Behind the gathered blackness lost on high;

And when thou dartest from the wind-rent cloud

Thy placid light'ning o'er the awaken'd sky....


Samuel Coleridge Taylor
