by Emily Brontë (1818 - 1848)

I gazed upon the cloudless moon
Language: English 
I gazed upon the cloudless moon,
And loved her all the night,
Till morning came and radiant noon	
And I forgot her light -

No, not forgot - eternally
Remains its memory dear;
But could the day seem dark to me
Because the night was fair?
