Triolet

Pale dawn has gathered every star

Then strikes a spark and lights the moon.

Behind night's door, time drops the bar.

Pale dawn has gathered every star,

But heaven's gate it leaves ajar,

And day pours forth a golden flume.

Pale dawn has gathered every star

Then strikes a spark and lights the moon.
