THE SOLITARY STAR. Thoushinestall alone, alone, 1" Bright wanderer o'er a billowy sea ■>[ > < fjC But, oh, as to some burning throne 'JUMI.-I'I 't» ii' How many eyes are turti'd to thee! t,j u Oh ever radiant, ever fair, s Thv bieams bright golden legends bear And faaev plumes her glittering wing fI, ,j Of far Hesperian worlds to sing And yet my heart would turn the page Of sacred wisdom, brighter far, And read from every rolling age The moral of that lonely star. Thus virtue shines alone, alone, A holy light, a stellar beam, A sabred Cestus* for her zone, Hire that which ancient poets' dream; And beaming on thro' rolling time, A, ylowing vision all sublime; Hex starry beam attracts our eyes, To her own temple in the skies; Though black the night, though dark the cloud, Which rolled around her mounting car; Her sparkling spirit pierced the shroud* I And shines in glory like a star. Thus Genius burns alone, alone, With thoughts of light on wings of fire; Its beams succeeding ages own; Its flames succeeding hearts inspirp The Tustan, st tube, the blind Man's song, The Grecian's|[ tome, the Grecian's tongue The painter's skill, the sculptors pride, The inventive art to shame allied Awhile unknown, awhile forgot, Yet Fame removes proud Fortune's bar, And to their bright and glorious lot, To shine in splendour each a star. Thus Truth too often shines alone. The glory of a cloudy night Till each opposing cloud be gone, 1;'1' And the whole Ileaveus are swathed in light; The noblest truths from glooms profourd, Scattered their bright influence round The brightest creeds that e'er were born, Came forth arrayed in robes of scorn. And bright to us, as truth appears. Her form bath many a battle scar; Now robed in light the vest she wears Makes every wound appear a star. And thus Love shines alone, alone, We all have felt its mighty power The heart hath only room for one, One star to cheer, its lonely hour Oh thou who to my, darkened dreams, Art like the sound of far off streams; Thy form I vainly long to see, I Yet, as a star, thou shin'st on me; Should life its darkest storms prepare, And clouds and tempests roll from far, I'll heed them not, if thou be there. My life, my glory, and my star. No more alone no more alone Lo hosts of taming Seraphs come Each watches on the dazzling throne, They strike the poor, proud spirit dumb; Ob, whenjn yonder worlds of light, This earth-born darkness takes its tight; Each earthly star shall take its throne. And beam no more alone, alone There Love with Genius shall combine, And Virtue mount her flaming car And golden Truths shall brightly shine, Each brighter than eve's brightest star. Cardiff.
