XXIII [Places among the stars]
Places among the stars, Soft gardens near the sun, Keep your distant beauty; Shed no beams upon my weak heart. Since she is here In a place of blackness, Not your golden days Not your silver nights Can call me to you. Since she is here In a place of blackness, Here I stay and wait.
