1    Where Claribel low-lieth
2    The breezes pause and die,
3    Letting the rose-leaves fall:
4But the solemn oak-tree sigheth,
5    Thick-leaved, ambrosial,
6    With an ancient melody
7    Of an inward agony,
8Where Claribel low-lieth.
9At eve the beetle boometh
10    Athwart the thicket lone:
11At noon the wild bee hummeth
12    About the moss'd headstone:
13At midnight the moon cometh,
14    And looketh down alone.
15Her song the lintwhite swelleth,
16The clear-voiced mavis dwelleth,
17    The callow throstle lispeth,
18The slumbrous wave outwelleth,
19    The babbling runnel crispeth,
20The hollow grot replieth
21    Where Claribel low-lieth.
