Farewell

I LEAVE the world to-morrow,—
 What news for Fairyland?
I’m tired of dust and sorrow
 And folk on every hand.
 
A moon more calm and splendid
 Moves there through deeper skies,
By maiden stars attended
 She peaces goddes-wise.
 
And there no wrath oppresses,
 And there no teardrops start,
There cool winds breathe caresses,
 That soothe the weary heart.
 
The wealth the mad world follows
 Turns ashes in the hand
Of him who sees the hollows
 And glades of Fairyland.
 
And pine boughs sigh no sorrow
 Where fairy rotas play,—
I leave the world to-morrow
 For ever and a day.
