night, send up the harvest moon To walk about the fields,

And make of midnight magic noon

On lonely tarns and wealds.

In golden ranks, with golden crowns,

All in the yellow land,

Old solemn kings in rustling gowns,

The shocks moon-charmed stand.

Sky-mirror she, afloat in space,

Beholds our coming morn:

Her heavenly joy hath such a grace,

It ripens earthly corn;

Like some lone saint with upward eyes,

Lost in the deeps of prayer:

The people still their prayers and sighs,

And gazing ripen there.
