Ruby’s Song And Spinel’s Song


from


The King in Yellow




The moon shines whitely; I shall take

Along the shore the cloud waves break,
My silk umbrella, lest the moon
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
Too warmly fall upon the lake
The shadows lengthen
And cause my bridal flowers to swoon.

In Carcosa.

The sparrow's sorrow is in vain,

Strange is the night where black stars rise
And so does he his bride forget.
And strange moons circle through the skies,
I wed the long grass and the rain,
But stranger still is
And seven sailors dripping wet.

Lost Carcosa.

And shall not you and shall not I

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Keep tryst beside this silent stream,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Who thought that we should rather die
Must die unheard in
Than wed the peacock's amber dream?

Dim Carcosa.

The moon shines whitely; I shall take

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
My silk umbrella, lest the moon
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Too coldly fall upon the lake
Shall dry and die in
And chill my bridal flowers too soon.

Lost Carcosa.
