A Quiet Smile Lasts

In a sky larger than the horizon can hold,

   The midsummer sun rules the night,

      Attending clouds reflect his light,

   It moves over the waves in mercurial flight,

And secrets of the music unfold,

It sings quietly of the fire in a star,

   And covers a sleepy northern isle,

      In such a gentle calming style,

   This unforgettable smile

Dark days of winter will not mar.
