Silence! not a leaf astir,
Only the moon to entrance
The forest of spruce and fir.

Cedar and tamarack are by the water set,
Staining the sanctuary pools with brooding silhouette.

So, with enchanter's art,
Liquid silence cools the elemental heart.

Over my spirit I feel the magic creep,
The once impetuous thought is held in dreamless sleep.
