Midsummer Night
By John Henry Boner (1845–1903)
 
AH what a perfect night is this
  For sauntering slowly hand in hand—
  Under moon-silvered leaves to stand
And touch lips brimming with a kiss,
 
While the warm night air, rich with scent        5
  Of white magnolia and red rose,
  Languidly sweetens as it blows
Through the low limbs above you bent.
