Bliss Carman, et al., eds.  The World’s Best Poetry.
Volume VI. Fancy.  1904.
 
Poems of Fancy: III. Mythical: Mystical: Legendary
Quatrains
William Hamilton Hayne (1856–1929)
 
MOONLIGHT SONG OF THE MOCKING-BIRD
EACH golden note of music greets
The listening leaves, divinely stirred,
As if the vanished soul of Keats
Had found its new birth in a bird.
 
NIGHT MISTS
SOMETIMES, when Nature falls asleep,
        5
  Around her woods and streams
The mists of night serenely creep—
  For they are Nature’s dreams.
 
AN AUTUMN BREEZE
THIS gentle and half melancholy breeze
Is but a wandering Hamlet of the trees,        10
Who finds a tongue in every lingering leaf
To voice some subtlety of sylvan grief.
