Here you will find the Poem What Counsel Has the Hooded Moon of poet James Joyce

What Counsel Has the Hooded Moon

What counsel has the hooded moon 
Put in thy heart, my shyly sweet, 
Of Love in ancient plenilune, 
Glory and stars beneath his feet -- - 
A sage that is but kith and kin 
With the comedian Capuchin? 

Believe me rather that am wise 
In disregard of the divine, 
A glory kindles in those eyes 
Trembles to starlight. Mine, O Mine! 
No more be tears in moon or mist 
For thee, sweet sentimentalist.
