The Court of Reverie

The moon was witness when I uttered it,

The nosy sea heard my oath;

Birds stirred the anthem and broke

Into song, and the wind with a whistle wailed along.

I was sitting alone with the love long gone,

when I heard the plea of an old melody—

And the moon,

the sea,

the birds, and

the wind,

Convicted me in the Court of Rev’rie.
