Lustre gleam of distant Life,

Burning flames pierce the Night,

As moth & owl on haunting flight,

While slumbering hills, their hollows hug,

Beast & Bird from darkness shadow,

Bursting forth past Mother Luna,

No humble whispers,

No, harkening cry!

Highlight 'fore dawn,

All washed from sight,

All hidden from eye 'neath Apollo's gaze!
