Arthur Quiller-Couch, comp.  The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse.  1922.
 
Nocturne
By Richard Garnett (1835–1906)
 
KEEN winds of cloud and vaporous drift
Disrobe yon star, as ghosts that lift
A snowy curtain from its place,
To scan a pillow’d beauty’s face.
 
They see her slumbering splendours lie        5
Bedded on blue unfathom’d sky.
And swoon for love and deep delight,
And stillness falls on all the night.
