Lay your sleeping head, my love,Human on my faithless arm;Time and fevers burn awayIndividual beauty fromThoughtful children, and the graveProves the child ephermeral:But in my arms till break of dayLet the living creature lie,Mortal, guilty, but to meThe entirely beautiful.Soul and body have no bounds:To lovers as they lie uponHer tolerant enchanted slopeIn their ordinary swoon,Grave the vision Venus sendsOf supernatural sympathy,Universal love and hope;While an abstract insight wakesAmong the glaciers and the rocksThe hermit's sensual ecstasy.Certainty, fidelityOn the stroke of midnight passLike vibrations of a bell,And fashionable madmen raiseTheir pedantic boring cry:Every farthing of the cost,All the dreadful cards foretell,Shall be paid, but not from this nightNot a whisper, not a thought,Not a kiss nor look be lost.Beauty, midnight, vision dies:Let the winds of dawn that blowSoftly round your dreaming headSuch a day of sweetness showEye and knocking heart may bless.Find the mortal world enough;

Noons of dryness see you fedBy the involuntary powers,Nights of insult let you passWatched by every human love.
