STARRY amorist, starward gone,

Thou art-what thou didst gaze upon!

Passed through thy golden garden's bars,

Thou seest the Gardener of the Stars.

She, about whose mooned brows

Seven stars make seven glows,

Seven lights for seven woes;

She, like thine own Galaxy,

All lustres in one purity:-

What said'st thou, Astronomer,

When thou did'st discover her?

When thy hand its tube let fall,

Thou found'st the fairest star of all!

(Stephen Perry, S.J.)
