In the Forest (Author: Oscar Wilde)
- 1] OUT of the mid-wood's twilight
2] Into the meadow's dawn,
3] Ivory limbed and brown-eyed,
4] Flashes my Faun!
- 5] He skips through the copses singing,
6] And his shadow dances along,
7] And I know not which I should follow,
8] Shadow or song!
- 9] O Hunter, snare me his shadow!
10] O Nightingale, catch me his strain!
11] Else moonstruck with music and madness
12] I track him in vain!
