Nirvana
 
John Hall Wheelock
 
 
SLEEP on—I lie at heaven’s high oriels,
  Over the stars that murmur as they go
  Lighting your lattice-window far below;
And every star some of the glory spells
  Whereof I know.        5
I have forgotten you, long long ago;
  Like the sweet, silver singing of thin bells
Vanished, or music fading faint and low.
  Sleep on—I lie at heaven’s high oriels,
Who loved you so.        10
