A Summer Night

‘Neath the mild beauty of a summer night,
I leave my chamber to enjoy the air, -
To feel its eddies circling in my hair,
And feel it kiss my brow in wild delight.

The starry gems bestud the concave high;
O blessed Stars! on you I fix my eye,
And long for your bright spheres to take my flight.
Beneath o’erlacing elms, shut out from sight,

I stray, my head reclined upon my breast, -
My thoughts away, away amid the blest, -
The world forgot, in my abstractions, quite.

Hark! there’s a sound of earth, a note of bliss, -
A most ecstatic smack, I wis, -
Borne to my ear from darkness, comes a lover’s kiss!
