"Glycine's Song"

Random Poetry List XLIV

A sunny shaft did I behold,
   From sky to earth it slanted:
And poised therein a bird so bold—
   Sweet bird, thou wert enchanted!

He sank, he rose, he twinkled, he trolled
   Within that shaft of sunny mist;
His eyes of fire, his beak of gold,
   All else of amethyst!

And thus he sang: "Adieu! adieu!
Love's dreams prove seldom true.
The blossoms, they make no delay:
The sparking dew-drops will not stay.
      Sweet month of May,
            We must away;
            Far, far away!
               To-day! to-day!"

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)
