Songs of the Sea Children

What are the great stars white and blue,
Sparkling along the twilight there? 
They are the dewy gems let fall, 
When I loosed your hair.

What is the great pale, languorous moon

5
On the floor of the sea alone? 
That is the yellow rose let fall, 
When I loosed your zone.
