Evening Star

'Twas noontide of summer,
  And mid-time of night;
  And stars, in their orbits,
  Shone pale, thro' 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 pass'd, 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.
