Night towers over all/And through the box-trees of evergreen cupolas/the foolish emperor tiptoes away/into the magic gardens of his retorts/and in the halcyon air of rose-red evenings/rings out the tinkle of the glass foliage/as it is touched by the alchemists' fingers/ as if by the wind. 'Prague', by Seifert
