Oscar Wilde (1854–1900).  Poems.  1881.

53. Impression: Le Reveillon


    THE sky is laced with fitful red, 
    The circling mists and shadows flee, 
    The dawn is rising from the sea, 
Like a white lady from her bed. 
  
    And jagged brazen arrows fall         5
    Athwart the feathers of the night, 
    And a long wave of yellow light 
Breaks silently on tower and hall, 
  
    And spreading wide across the wold 
    Wakes into flight some fluttering bird,  10
    And all the chestnut tops are stirred, 
And all the branches streaked with gold.
