Song to the Evening Star

1 Star that bringest home the bee,
2 And sett’st the weary labourer free!
3 If any star shed peace, ’tis thou,
4 That send’st it from above,
5 Appearing when Heaven’s breath and brow
6 Are sweet as hers we love.

7 Come to the luxuriant skies
8 Whilst the landscape’s odours rise,
9 Whilst far-off lowing herds are heard,
10 And songs, when toil is done,
11 From cottages whose smoke unstirred
12 Curls yellow in the sun.

13 Star of lover’s soft interviews,
14 Parted lovers on thee muse;
15 Their remembrancer in heaven
16 Of thrilling vows thou art,
17 Too delicious to be riven
18 By absence from the heart.
