THE LORDS OF LIFE: 5. VENUS, by            
First Line: Another light now climbs the purple steep
Last Line: While o'er life's toiling wave they seek their rome.


ANOTHER light now climbs the purple steep
Of heaven where thou holdest on thy way,
Immortal star! Soon following will the day
Thrust up a shining arm and beckon sleep
From eyelids that remember not to weep
Beneath the influence of thy sweet ray:
Lo, they that need thee do not vainly pray
Thy orbèd splendor hanging in the deep,—
O Star of Love! named with the name she bore,
Who like a star rose flashing from the foam
That sings at morning round Cythera's shore;
Who gave her exiles hope and led them home:
Shine on, and cheer the hearts that else were sore,
While o'er life's toiling wave they seek their Rome.
