In the Forest (Author: Oscar Wilde)


  1. 1] OUT of the mid-wood's twilight
    2] Into the meadow's dawn,
    3] Ivory limbed and brown-eyed,
    4] Flashes my Faun!
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
