  Far in yon azure deeps
    Hide, hide your golden light!

        My lady sleeps!
          Sleeps.

  The heaven of April, with its changing light.

O summer day beside the joyous sea!
  O summer day so wonderful and white,

  The earth was beautiful as if new-born;

          Congratulate each other as they meet.
