Littell's Living Age/Volume 132/Issue 1701/Cæli


If stars were really watching eyes
Of angel legions in the skies,
I should forget the countless host,
And seek your gazes still the most.

And if your eyes were really stars,
With leagues of desertspace for bars
To keep me from their longed-for day,
I should not feel so far away.

F. W. B. Spectator.
