and...after a many summer dies the swan It
withers slowly in thine arms All
night long amorous anthems sung It's
tears on your cheek history, of the fan Sweet

is the breath of night With
charm of earliest birds Close
over us the, silver star thy, guide Dying
embers our, only light (scorching
away mortality Till
the moon rising in clouded majesty) But

see the many-coloured prime retired to rest Thy
long tongued blood demands supplies Honour
and beauty are but dreams Big
alike with wound and dart Like

fiery dews that melt The
swan's soul into the boughs does glide Flaming
swords forbidden They
banish me from you Remembrance
of a bitter loss Ruined

love when, it's built anew Grows
fairer more, strong far, greater While
glory crowns so many hatreds crest Waking
thou, wert in thy nakedness and
...after a many summer dies the swan
