Up the sky, in silent; holy,
Comes the young inon, slowly, slowly,
Softly with her light divine
Filll g, like a cup with win. ' ' 1
On the broa?l bay falls her luster
Where the anchored vessels cluster
While their sails gleam snowy white,
' Brightened by her pearly light. '
Thou whose restless, high endeavor
Led the from my sight forever,
To thy home beyon 4 the sea
Comes there auy thougut of ms ? .
Only last year thou wert roaming
With me in the dewy gloaming, '
Talking with low-m.irmuring lips
. Of the moonlight and the ships. .
Now again I wander nightly 1
When the falling radianca whitely,
All across the sleeping bay ,..
.. Builds a broad aod shining tyay, .
But the scene so dreamy tfnder .
Loses half it mystic aplundor, .
Since ukm the whispering shore
Hi ou wilt walk with me no more.
For though fame and beauty ever -Crown

Thou hast looked thy last with uie.
