Fancy's Song

by John Vance Cheney

John Vance Cheney

Hear fancy's song;

The warm day long,

Like her melody

No other sound may be;

Not the luscious croon

Of sunny noon,

Not the lullaby

When the day winds die,

And the blossoms rest

On the meadow's breast,

And the stopt clouds lie

White asleep

In the deep

Of the silent sky.

Hear fancy's song;

The warm night long,

So sweet her melody,

For her dear sake

The roses wake,

And the pale waves lie and glisten,

And the quiet sea-shells listen,

Nor sing any more of the sea.
