Starlit recorder of summer nights,
what magic spell bewitches you?
They say that all lovers love first in the dark . . .
Is it true?
   Is it true?
      Is it true?

Starry-eyed seer of all that appears
and all that has appearedβ€”
What sights have you seen?
What dreams have you dreamed?
What rhetoric have you heard?

Is love an oration,
or is it a word?
Have you heard?
   Have you heard?
      Have you heard?

I believe I wrote this poem about an enchanted, bewitched lake in my late teens, during my β€œRomantic Period.”
