Under the Balcony
[in another hand:] by Oscar Wilde

O beautiful star with the crimson mouth!
    O moon with the brows of gold!
Rise up, rise up, from the odorous south!
        And light for my love her way,
        Lest her little feet should stray
    On the windy hill and the wold!
O beautiful star with the crimson mouth!
    O moon with the brows of gold!
