Once, in the velvet blackness of the night
I saw a single star --
Golden and wondrous, just outside my reach,
As dreams so often are.

I watched it with a longing in my heart
That it were always mine;
That I could place it where forever I
Alone might see it shine.

It could not be -- the morning came, and then
The star seemed out of sight;
The sun shone on the day's realities;
Gone was the wondrous night.

And yet, though work contentment brings each day
In sunshine and the things that are --
In darkness still my heart turns back again
To the glory of that star.
