And the stars were shining, and the earth smelled sweet, the garden gate scraped, and a step brushed the sand. She came in, fragrant, and fell into my arms.
Oh! sweet kisses, oh! languid caresses, while I, trembling, released her lovely features from their veils! My dream of love has vanished forever. The moment is gone, and I die in despair! And I never have loved life so much!
