A Trip to Venus  (1897) 
by John Munro

Published in 1897 by Jarrold & Sons, London

    "The heaven that rolls around cries aloud to you while it displays
    its eternal harmony, and yet your eyes are fixed upon the earth

    "This truth within thy mind rehearse,
     That in a boundless universe
     Is boundless better, boundless worse.
    "Think you this mould of hopes and fears
     Could find no statelier than his peers
     In yonder hundred million spheres?"
