Orbits
 
Richard Le Gallienne (1866–1947)
 
 
TWO stars once on their lonely way
  Met in the heavenly height,
And they dreamed a dream they might shine alway
  With undivided light;
Melt into one with a breathless throe,        5
  And beam as one in the night.
 
And each forgot in the dream so strange
  How desolately far
Swept on each path, for who shall change
  The orbit of a star?        10
Yea, all was a dream, and they still must go
  As lonely as they are.
