1. Off key (in a musical sense).
As often-times the too resplendent sun
Hurries the pallid and reluctant moon
Back to her sombre cave, ere she hath won
A single ballad from the nightingale,
So doth thy Beauty make my lips to fail,
And all my sweetest singing out of tune...   Silentium Amoris by Oscar Wilde
1. At odds with an objects surroundings.
The sea is flecked with bars of grey,
The dull dead wind is out of tune,
And like a withered leaf the moon
Is blown across the stormy bay...   Les Silhouettes by Oscar Wilde
