I awoke in the Midsummer not to call night, in the white and the
walk of the morning:
The moon, dwindled and thinned to the fringe of a finger-nail
held to the candle,
Or paring of paradisaïcal fruit, lovely in waning but lustreless,
Stepped from the stool, drew back from the barrow, of dark
Maenefa the mountain;
A cusp still clasped him, a fluke yet fanged him, entangled him,
not quit utterly.
This was the prized, the desirable sight, unsought, presented so
Parted me leaf and leaf, divided me, eyelid and eyelid of slumber.
--Gerard Manley Hopkins
