To the Evening Star
By William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
(See full text.)

                SINCE the Sun,
The absolute, the world-absorbing one,
Relinquished half his empire to the host
Emboldened by thy guidance, holy star,
Holy as princely, who that looks on thee,        5
Touching, as now, in thy humility
The mountain borders of this seat of care,
Can question that thy countenance is bright,
Celestial power, as much with love as light?
