C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Heaven Hath its Stars
By Marcus Argentarius (First Century B.C.)
The Greek Anthology
 
Translation of Richard Garnett

FEASTING, I watch with westward-looking eye
The flashing constellations’ pageantry,
Solemn and splendid; then anon I wreathe
My hair, and warbling to my harp I breathe
My full heart forth, and know the heavens look down        5
Pleased, for they also have their Lyre and Crown.
