Burst through the walls of these clouds
Mistress of this jewelled night
Lend our watching eyes a ray
Our joyous heart a smile.
Scatter your pearls across the sky
On heaven's stream it will flow
Rain down diamonds from your starry vault
To this couple down below.
Sing still more with a bolder strain
Sweet feathered music box
We shall pay for the tune with a call to you
To share our nest of love.
Run down the empty road
Guest that no one knows whence its coming;
Repeat to these eavesdropping trees
The words of our romantic mouthings.
Quiet flowing stream, we never came to you
To show you what love can do
But the puddles that lapped beneath our feet
In rivulets shall bear our tale to you.
Great love of mine, here I stand
Washed clean by your eye's pool
Here I bow, captured, a slave
Not conquered by a sword, but a look.
