There is a chamber in the dawn 
Sought by a bird alone 
A cloud, a gleam, a veil withdrawn 
On brighter veils beyond, 
Glistening with one far ringing tone, 
One fluttering mote and blond. 

There is a chamber in the night 
Sought by a girl alone 
A secret place white after white 
With inner veils more dim 
And farther places whitely strown 
As though with thoughts that swim.
