Poem by Sidney Lanier
LOOK off, dear Love, across the shallow sands, And mark yon meeting of the sun and the sea, How long they kiss in sight of all the lands. Ah! longer, longer we. Now in the sea's red vintage melts the sun, As Egypt's red pearl dissolved in rosy wine, And Cleopatra night drinks all. 'Tis done, Love, lay thine hand in mine. Come forth, sweet stars, and comfort heaven's heart; Glimmer, ye waves, round else unlighted sands. O night! divorce our sun and sky apart Never our lips, our hands.
