Sappho to Hesperus
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
 
I HAVE beheld thee in the morning hour
A solitary star, with thankless eyes,
Ungrateful as I am! who bade thee rise
When sleep all night had wandered from my bower.
 
Can it be true that thou art he        5
Who shines now above the sea
Amid a thousand, but more bright?
Ah yes! the very same art thou
That heard me then and hearest now …
Thou seemest, star of love! to throb with light.        10
