    'Twas noontide of summer,
    And midtime of night,
    And stars, in their orbits,
    Shone pale, through the light
    Of the brighter, cold moon.
    'Mid planets her slaves,
    Herself in the Heavens,
    Her beam on the waves.

    I gazed awhile
    On her cold smile;
    Too cold--too cold for me--
    There passed, as a shroud,
    A fleecy cloud,
    And I turned away to thee,
    Proud Evening Star,
    In thy glory afar
    And dearer thy beam shall be;
    For joy to my heart
    Is the proud part
    Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
    And more I admire
    Thy distant fire,
    Than that colder, lowly light.

    1827.
