Rebuffed Unanswered By The Inconstant Stars - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Rebuffed unanswered by the inconstant stars
I walked away, away into the night
Beneath the lanky trees without a move
Looking half—afraid half-dreamy down
On to the cobbled paths whereon I tread.
And thus that I to the statue came
That in the garden stood alone and sweet
Marbled full white half-robed : to meet
My fate to her I went - vain fool! -
That she might speak to me and know
About my lady-love my beauty-queen
And so in to the night amongst the trees
Alone stood I beneath the pitying stars.

The moon smiled faintly languidly
