June Night in Georgia

Silver crescent of moon
Wrapt in mist,
Rich perfume of bay blossoms
Floating in waves
Of fragrance on the night air,
The chance spark of a firefly
Tearing the velvet duskiness—
Is a June night in Georgia

Dim sparkle of cool waters,
A night bird's cry
Shattering the perfect stillness,
Pale roses faintly visible,
Lacy trceries of tangled trees
In the soft star-light—
Is a June night in Georgia
