Nocturne by Amelia Josephine Burr

Lovers in the Moonlight by Marc Chagall All the earth a hush of white,
White with moonlight all the skies;
Wonder of a winter night--
And . . . your eyes.

Hues no palette dares to claim
Where the spoils of sunken ships
Leap to light in singing flame--
And . . . your lips.

Darkness as the shadows creep
Where the embers sigh to rest;
Silence of a world asleep--
And . . . your breast.

-Amelia Josephine Burr, 1916
