CCLXII. To the Evening Star
STAR that bringest home the bee, 
And sett'st the weary labourer free! 
If any star shed peace, 'tis thou 
  That send'st it from above, 
Appearing when Heaven's breath and brow         5
  Are sweet as hers we love. 
Come to the luxuriant skies, 
Whilst the landscape's odours rise, 
Whilst far-off lowing herds are heard 
  And songs when toil is done,  10
From cottages whose smoke unstirr'd 
  Curls yellow in the sun. 
Star of love's soft interviews, 
Parted lovers on thee muse; 
Their remembrancer in Heaven  15
  Of thrilling vows thou art, 
Too delicious to be riven 
  By absence from the heart.
