YON LOVELY STAR, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Yon lovely star, that greets our eyes
Last Line: Bright and eternal in the skies.
Subject(s): Sky; Stars

YON lovely star, that greets our eyes,
Oft as prevails descending night,
And lives divinely in the skies,
Forever pure, forever bright;
Though clouds may often veil its face,
Or midnight tempests roll between,
They pass, and leave no single trace
On all its perfect beauty seen.

And thus, though clouds, with drooping wing,
May sometimes hover o'er thy way,
And human care and sorrow fling
Life's passing sadness on the day;
Still, as these transient shadows roll,
May all thy spirit's lustre rise,
Undimmed the pathway of thy soul,
Bright and eternal in the skies.
