2. WEARINESS.

 

Ah, 'mid the fields
Of pallid green
Wields
Crystalline night her sheen.
An ocean white
Quivers in space.
Bright
Mists waft round my resting-place.
Misty chains
Softly entwine
Strains
Of silvery harps that fade and pine.
Life's imaged wreath
Is blurred in dream
'Neath
Nirvana’s dome with stainless gleam.

Ah, with this haze
Showered pearly tears their chimings merge.
Glaze
Steeps me adream, now I have gained the verge. . .
