~ 'Neath the Moonlight~

'Neath the moonlight, shadows wake
on the dark and lonely shore;
Breaking waves mourn a mistake,
made this night though ne'er before.

Cloaked within night's dappled wings,
in this softly splendid light;
Meet in secret two beings,
false love hidden now unite.

As the wailing winds cry tears,
for the one who lies awake;
And the mocking night declares,
"Evermore your soul shall ache"

'Til the dark recedes to gray,
and moonlight fades to dawn -
Two hearts, as one, part their way,
feigning what the night has drawn.
