A Love Fancy

Night was new-throned in heaven, and we did rove
  Together in the cool and shadowless haze
  That thickened round, at the wild stars to gaze
Ere yet the moon’s red rim had showed above
The pine-trees. For in both our souls did move
  The same fond lover-fancy,—that their rays
  Were richer for all those who from the ways
Of man’s long past had looked at them in love;
And when our glances through their midst did run
  From orb to orb of all that seemed most fair,
To fix at last with mutual heed on one
  That gloried in the West beyond compare,
It seemed to us that when the day was done,
  The spirit of our joy was mansioned there
