Stars In The Canopy Of Summer Sky

Bright eternal stars, flickering steadfast stars, immovable as you are
Yet drifting along universal canopy so vast in lone splendor hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart, the earth from such distances far
Like nature's patient, sleepless, recluse in your endless paths of bright,

Bright eternal stars when you watch the moving waters upon the earth womb at their nourishing task
Constantly occupied in the pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or when gazing on the new white soft-fallen concealing mask
Of snow upon the mountains edges and the flat open moors

yet still steadfast, still immovable, still unchangeable,
Pillowed my childhood dreams upon my vexed breast,
To feel for ever their soft sweet fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet delirious unrest,

Still, to lie and contemplate back memories andto hear the tender-taken breath,
And so live ever in that childhood beauty and holy faith.
