The leaded window opened
To move the dancing candle flame
And the first Moths of summer
Suicidal came, suicidal came.

And a new breeze chattered
In its May-bud tenderness,
Sending water-lillies sailing
As she turned to get undressed.

And the long night awakened
And we soared on powdered wings,
Circling our tomorrows
In the wary month of Spring.
