Hark! o'er the silent waters stealing,

The dash of oars sounds soft and clear:

Through night's deep veil, all forms concealing,

Nearer it comes, and yet more near.

See! where the long reflection glistens,

In yon lone tower her watch-light burns:

To hear our distant oars she listens,

And, listtening, strikes the harp by turns.

The stars are bright, the skies unclouded;

No moonbeam shines; no breezes wake:

Is it my love, in darkness shrouded,

Whose dashing oar disturbs the lake?

O haste, sweet maid, the cords unrolling;

The holy hermit chides our stay!

Hark! from his lonely islet tolling,

His midnight bell shall guide our way.

Thomas Love Peacock
