stars quotes- 10 of
All stars stand close in summer air
And tremble, and look mild as amber;
Thou Fair-haired Angel of the Evening,
Now, whilst the sun rests on the mountains, light
Let thy West Wind sleep on
The lake; speak silence with thy glimmering eyes,
And wash the dusk with silver.
The constellated sounds
ran sprinkling on earth's floor
As the dark vault above
with stars was spangled o'er.
The stars are scattered all over the sky like shimmering tears, there must be great pain in the eye from which they trickled.
And the sentinel stars set their watch in the sky;
Hesperus thy twinkling ray
Beams in the blue of heaven
... that darkling brightness which falls from the stars.
Stars prick the eyes with sharp ammoniac proverbs,
Stars scribble on our eyes the frosty sagas,
The gleaming cantos of unvanquished space . . .
