by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Is the moon tired? she looks so pale
Language: English 
Is the moon tired? she looks so pale
Within her misty veil:
She scales the sky from east to west,
And takes no rest.

Before the coming of the night
The moon shows papery white;
Before the dawning of the day
She fades away.
