  Love Song  

Once in the world's first prime,
    When nothing lived or stirred--
Nothing but new-born Time,
    Nor was there even a bird--
The Silence spoke to a Star;
    But I do not dare repeat
What it said to its love afar,
    It was too sweet, too sweet.

But there, in the fair world's youth,
    Ere sorrow had drawn breath,
When nothing was known but Truth,
    Nor was there even death,
The Star to Silence was wed,
    And the Sun was priest that day,
And they made their bridal-bed
    High in the Milky Way.

For the great white star had heard
    Her silent lover's speech;
It needed no passionate word
    To pledge them each to each.
Oh, lady fair and far,
    Hear, oh, hear and apply!
Thou, the beautiful Star--
    The voiceless Silence, I.
