AB ASTRIS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I saw the stars swept through ethereal space
Last Line: This rhythmic march led on by power divine.
Subject(s): Stars


I saw the stars swept through ethereal space—
Stars, suns, and systems in infinity,—
Our earth an atom in the shoreless sea,
Where each had its appointed path and place:
And I was lost in my own nothingness.
But then I said, Dost thou not know that He
Who guides these orbs through trackless space, guides thee?
No longer grovelling thus, thyself abase;
For in this vast, harmonious, perfect whole,
In infinite progression moving on,
Thou hast thy place, immortal human soul—
Thy place and part, not less than star and sun;
Then with this grand procession fall in line,
This rhythmic march led on by power divine.
