As the moon's soft splendor 
O'er the faint, cold starlight of heaven
  Is thrown,
So thy voice most tender
To the strings without soul has given
  Its own.

The stars will awaken,
Though the moon sleep a full hour later
  Tonight: 
No leaf will be shaken
Whilst the dews of thy melody scatter
  Delight.

Though the sound overpowers,
Sing again, with thy sweet voice revealing
  A tone 
Of some world far from ours,
Where music and moonlight and feeling
  Are one.

Lay a garland on my hearse,
  Of the dismal yew,
Maidens, willow branches [bear]1,
  Say I died true.

My love was false, but I was firm
  [From my hour of birth;]2
Upon my buried body lie
  Lightly, [gentle]3 earth.
