by Alfred Edward Housman (1859 - 1936)

The rainy Pleiads wester
Language: English 
The rainy Pleiads wester,
  Orion plunges prone,
The stroke of midnight ceases,
  And I lie down alone.

The rainy Pleiads wester
  And seek beyond the sea
The head that I shall dream of,
  And 'twill not dream of me.
