HEAVENS
[ Also see Sky Stars World ]

Ye stars! which are the poetry of heaven;
  If in our bright leaves we would read the fate
    Of men and empires--'t is to be forgiven,
      That in our aspirations to be great,
        Our destinies o'erleap their mortal state,
          And claim a kindred with you; for ye are
            A beauty and a mystery, and create
              In us such love and reverence from afar,
                That fortune, fame, power, life, have nam'd themselves a star.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The blue, deep, glorious heavens!--I lift mine eye,
  And bless thee, O my God! that I have met
    And own'd thine image in the majesty
      Of their calm temple still! that never yet
        There hath thy face been shrouded from my sight
          By noontide blaze, or sweeping storm of night!
            I bless thee, O my God!
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

But the day is spent;
  And stars are kindling in the firmament,
    To us how silent--though like ours, perchance,
      Busy and full of life and circumstance.
      - Samuel Rogers

This prospect vast, what is it?--weigh'd aright,
  'Tis nature's system of divinity,
    And every student of the night inspires.
      'Tis elder scripture, writ by God's own hand:
        Scripture authentic! uncorrupt by man.
      - Edward Young
