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!
