THE TWO STARS, by            
First Line: Day has her star, as well as night
Last Line: That earth receives its dead.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Day; Night; Stars; Bedtime

Day has her star, as well as Night,
One star is black, the other white.
I saw a white star burn and pant
And swirl with such a wildness, once --
That I stood still, and almost stared
Myself into a trance!
The star of Day, both seen and heard
Is but a little, English bird;
The Lark, whose wings beat time to his
Wild rapture, sings, high overhead;
When silence comes, we almost fear
That Earth receives its dead.
