Ghosts of uncreated creatures
Sleeping troubled flicker
Like the paddles of Mauritius
On enamel wall of lacquer.

Purple hands are half-asleep
On enamel wall of lacquer,
Charting sounds with a sweep
In a silence — ringing clangour.

And so glassy lucent stalls
In a silence ringing clangour
Are like spangles rising all
Under azure moonlight grander.

Rising crescent is uncoating
Under azure moonlight grander.
Sounds sleepy subtly floating,
Sounds reaching me with languor.

Secrets of created creatures
Fawn upon me with a languor.
Trembling is the shadow of Mauritius
On enamel wall of lacquer.
