First Line: Is it that small black star

Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Birds; Stars


Is it that small black star,
Twinkling in broad daylight,
Upon the bosom of
Yon cloud so white --
Is it that small black thing
Makes earth and all Heaven ring!

Sing, you black star; and soar
Until, alas! too soon
You fall to earth in one
Long singing swoon;
But you will rise again
To heaven, from this green plain.

Sing, sing, sweet star; though black,
Your company's more bright
Than any star that shines
With a white light;
Sing, Skylark, sing; and give
To me thy joy to live.
