Impression (Author: Oscar Wilde)
- 1] The sky is laced with fitful red,
2] The circling mists and shadows flee,
3] The dawn is rising from the sea,
4] Like a white lady from her bed.
- 5] And jagged brazen arrows fall
6] Athwart the feathers of the night,
7] And a long wave of yellow light
8] Breaks silently on tower and hall,
- 9] And spreading wide across the wold,
10] Wakes into flight some fluttering bird,
11] And all the chestnut tops are stirred,
12] And all the branches streaked with gold.
