Impressions (Author: Oscar Wilde)
La Fuite de la Lune
- 1] To outer senses there is peace,
2] A dreamy peace on either hand,
3] Deep silence in the shadowy land,
4] Deep silence where the shadows cease.
- 5] Save for a cry that echoes shrill
6] From some lone bird disconsolate;
7] A corncrake calling to its mate;
8] The answer from the misty hill.
- 9] And suddenly the moon withdraws
10] Her sickle from the lightening skies,
11] And to her sombre cavern flies,
12] Wrapped in a veil of yellow gauze.
