The Pale and Silver Moon's Blue Silk and Blossom


They bade you softly,
They bade you so -
'Do not go, do not go, '

To the pale and silver moon's blue silk and blossom
They fail you softly
Their words -
They fail you so

- To the pale and silver moon's blue silk and blossom
And in the snow
Yes - in the snow

Where words do pale, but justice do
The silver moon's blue silk and blossom
You trusted through
You trusted through

Poem of the Day

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
